Seth Adam Smith and Ganel-Lyn Condie, two LDS authors and speakers, are committed to speaking out about mental health and how suicide has touched their lives. Smith has been open on his blog with his own struggles with suicide and depression and Condie shares how her life has been affected by her sister’s suicide.
Recently, they teamed up to publish a powerful video where Condie discusses this penetrating question many ask themselves: Would everyone be happier without me?
