Dealing with Depression and Mental Illness

By Mormon.org

Depression, anxiety, and other forms of mental illness are real and can be overwhelming, even debilitating. However, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland encourages: “Of greatest assurance in God’s plan is that a Savior was promised, a Redeemer, who through our faith in Him would lift us triumphantly over those tests and trials, even though the cost to do so would be unfathomable for both the Father who sent Him and the Son who came. It is only an appreciation of this divine love that will make our own lesser suffering first bearable, then understandable, and finally redemptive.”

Whether seeking relief through counseling, medical assistance, or the support of family and friends, those struggling with mental illness can find hope and healing through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Watch, listen, and read as others share their insights about dealing with different forms of mental illness. 

These two brief video messages offer hope when dealing with mental illness.
