As we reported in our post this week, the Church has added new resources to the Mental Health page on LDS.org, including candid video interviews with members experiencing mental illness and answers to “hard questions.”
The World Health Organization claims that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental illness at some point in their life. According to MentalHealth.lds.org, help is available “whether you’re just discovering the importance of caring for your own mental health, learning to cope with a mental illness, or searching for solutions to help a loved one.”
The site currently features six videos from members sharing personal experiences with depression, sadness, eating disorders, sexual abuse, schizophrenia, and suicide. An additional section provides suggestions for questions such as “How can I feel happy when I can’t feel anything” and “How can I help people understand what I’m going through?”
If you or someone you know could use this resource, please share this with them or visit the webpage mentalhealth.lds.org. Also, read more about it on the Church News website.
