Joe Pantoliano, probably best known (by me, anyway) as Cosmo in The Fugitive, has started a foundation to raise awareness for those with depression and other mental illnesses (he has depression). The website is: http://www.nkm2.org/
Certainly, this is a whole area that doesn't get discussed in the open nearly enough, so I'm glad to see the power of celebrity doing something in this regard. While discussing this during a Sox game with Don & Eck on NESN, he mentioned that more servicemen and women are killing themselves in Iraq than are being killed in combat. Jeebus.
P.S. You might remember him from Risky Business, The Matrix, Memento, or The Sopranos
