An important part of good mental health is the ability to look at problems or concerns realistically. Everyone has days when they feel sad, stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed by lifes challenges. If you continue to struggle for several weeks or longer or your symptoms begin interfering with your daily lifeat home, work, school, or in your relationshipsseek help. Talk to someone you trust, such as a family member, friend, bishop, or mental health professional. Addressing mental health concerns early can prevent a crisis in the future.

Struggling with your mental health does not indicate a weakness in your character or spirit. Elder Neil L. Andersen reminded us that while ones earthly situation may not be ideal, [ones] spiritual DNA is perfect because ones true identity is as a son or daughter of God (Whoso Receiveth Them, Receiveth Me,EnsignorLiahona, May 2016, 50).
