Mental Illness Awareness

Elder Sherry Hanchett

Start Journal Here:

Mental health has been a growing concern around the world, and individuals have been seeking ways to conquer it. Some people turn to medication, therapy, or exercise, but what about consulting God? The idea of turning to a higher power for guidance is not a new concept, and it can be a valuable tool for those seeking to improve their mental health.

Firstly, consulting God can provide a sense of comfort and guidance during times of distress. Many religious beliefs teach that God is always there to listen and provide support, which can offer a sense of relief to those struggling with mental health issues. Furthermore, prayer and meditation can be a powerful way to calm the mind and reduce anxiety and stress.

Secondly, religious communities can offer a valuable source of support and belonging. Having a group of people who share similar beliefs and experiences can provide a sense of connection and understanding, which can be especially helpful for individuals struggling with mental health issues. Religious communities can also offer practical support, such as providing meals or financial assistance, to those in need.

However, it's important to note in addition to looking to God for life's most difficult answers, consulting seeking professional help from a mental health professional is crucial and should not be ignored or overlooked. Medication and therapy can provide significant benefits and work in conjunction with consulting God to help individuals overcome their struggles.

God is the lighthouse for those seeking to conquer mental health issues. He can provide comfort, guidance, and a sense of belonging, all of which can be beneficial for those struggling with mental health. By working together, individuals can take the necessary steps to improve their mental health and live a fulfilling life.
