Kristoff St. John is still being mourned by The Young and the Restless fan base, and many others in the acting business as news of his death is still rather new. The actor was found dead in his home on Sunday, and the details surrounding the circumstances aren’t clear.

The last several years have been hard for Kristoff St. John. In 2014, his son Julian died by suicide while in a mental health facility. There was a long battle with mental illness for St. John’s son but his death weighed heavily on the actor.

A downward spiral

Grieving the loss of his son Julian was not easy for Kristoff St. John. There were some days that were better than others, but when things got bad, they got really bad.

In 2017, Kristoff St. John was placed on a psychiatric hold after allegedly threatening to kill himself. Those claims were never confirmed, but the actor took a leave from The Young and the Restless while he sorted things out.
