Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles spoke in October 2013 general conference on acknowledging and confronting mental illness. “Though we may feel we are ‘like a broken vessel, … we must remember, that vessel is in the hands of the divine potter,’” said Elder Holland. This episode of the Church News podcast features a licensed psychologist and Latter-day Saint who has spent his career helping individuals struggling with anxiety and mental illness. David T. Morgan, a counselor, author and motivational speaker, uses gospel insights and real-life applications to explore strategies — secular and spiritual — to forge emotional resilience.
This podcast continues the previous Church News podcast conversations about mental health, which include “Church News Podcast Episode 37: Sister Aburto on mental, emotional health and the power of turning to the Savior for comfort,” and “Church News Podcast Episode 16: Anxiety and a Church resource for Life Help.”
