The performer’s friends Rebecca LaChance and Tim Oxbrow previously revealed that he had parted ways from the stage for his struggle with schizoaffective disorder. In a September 2022 GoFundMe fundraiser LaChance and Oxbrow Shared,

“This diagnosis has resulted in Chris experiencing debilitating paranoia, which has kept him from performing in recent years. As well as affecting his capacity to work in the field he built his career in over the last 18 years, Chris’s mental health has affected every aspect of his life.”

The actor’s last social media activity is dated back to 2021 when he celebrated the birth of his his daughter Aria Li Gomes-Peluso. He is basically based in London although he moved in to the USA following his treatment. He appeared in some popular productions such as The Woman in WhiteDeath Takes a HolidayShow Boat and the revival of Miss Saigon.

Moreover, the GoFundMe said at the time of the actor’s break, “In recent months, the paranoia has consumed him to the extent that he is unable to work any job and has had to leave his wife and young child and return to America to seek treatment. Chris has no health care insurance in the US and was recently hospitalized for about two weeks. Currently, he is seeking treatment at an inpatient mental health rehabilitation centre.”

Meanwhile, the late star also shared his thoughts by saying, “Hopefully this helps bring some awareness to how so many suffer from mental illness in silence. You never know what someone may be going through. Be kind to each other.”

Later on, he also gave his health update. He said that he is “able to hold down a job again and even began taping some auditions.”
