Obviously, financial success and world fame is not the antidote to depression and other forms of mental illness. Maybe financial success and fame (and the pressure that comes with these things) can sometimes lead to mental illness. (See, e.g., the current occupant of the W. House). Suicides are an increasing in frequency and this is pretty troubling. I think at least one famous French Chef, upon losing a Michelin star, did the same. It's very unfortunate.
