Margot Kidder's daughter makes mental health appeal

Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose Margot Kidder’s Death Ruled a Suicide

In a statement provided to The Associated Press Wednesday, Coroner Richard Wood said Kidder's death was "a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose". But she didn't say anything until the coroner released an official statement.

The daughter of late Superman star Margot Kidder has urged people experiencing mental health difficulties to seek help after a coroner's office in the USA released its ruling on her mother's death.

Her obituary in the New York Times did not specify a cause of death.

Margot Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane, told the AP it's a relief to finally have the truth come out.

She had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and, in 1996, she suffered a public manic episode and nervous breakdown.

Kidder was found May 13 in her home in the USA state of Montana.

In the month after Kidder died at age 69 on May 13 in Livingston, Mont., designer Kate Spade and chef Anthony Bourdain took their own lives, prompting widespread conversations about how to prevent what has become a national public health crisis.

In what was an obvious reference to the Superman movies, Kidder made a cameo in Smallville along with the series' stars Michael Rosenbaum and Allison Mack.

While no further details will be released of her suicide, McGuane added that "it's a unique sort of grief and pain and that she would like to reach out to every family who is suffering through a loss by suicide". I want what I know about her to be out there because it was glorious. She went on to appear in small films and television shows until 2017, including an appearance on R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour.

Both Kidder and co-star Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts, and neither saw many major roles afterwards.
