Depression and Anxiety a Reality

 

As a Latter-day Saint who suffers from profound depression and has done for many, many years it is interesting to hear a Church leader speak so frankly on the topic, given that when I was first told what was wrong with me a so called friend and stake leader told me that I just wasn’t praying and reading the scriptures enough. However, Latter-day Saints are not the only ones who misunderstand psychiatric illness by any means. Elder Holland’s talk adds to that hopefully growing understanding that illnesses of the mind cannot alone be controlled by squaring our shoulders and getting on with life.
