Maggie McGuane told the Associate Press that she knew her mom died from suicide after she went to her mom's home on May 13, the day her mom died.

She told AP: "It's a very unique sort of grief and pain".

In 1996, she was briefly homeless during her struggle and she became a very public advocate for mental health.

MARGOT Kidder's daughter says the Superman actress' death has been ruled a suicide. Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known. The world mourned the loss of chef, celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain and fashion designer, Kate Spade this past summer as well. Additional high-profile roles included her part in 1979's The Amityville Horror and 1975's The Great Waldo Pepper, opposite Robert Redford. Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's "The Neighborhood".

She won a daytime Emmy award in 2015 for her role in children's series RL Stine's The Haunting Hour. The coroner did not specify which drugs she took, TMZ reported. She was also a political activist who was arrested in Washington in 2011 at a protest over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
