Mormons Don't Get Depressed?
"FYI: We Latter-day Saints get depression and anxiety like any other mortals. To think and act otherwise would be the same as to pretend we are above the laws of nature. To say that membership in the church is a ticket to a world free of depression and anxiety is like saying that all babies born in the covenant don't get colic. It is equally untrue that no kid in Primary acts out, no young men and women in Mutual have acne, missionaries never get sick and high priests don't have heart attacks.
"It just ain't so."
Read the entire article by Dr. Joseph Kramer at MormonTimes.com, for great insights into this misunderstood subject.
Thanks to Margie Clark for the story tip.
