“Would Everyone Be Happier Without Me?” – LDS Mental Health Advocate Speaks Out

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

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?



**All suicidal thoughts, behaviors, and attempts should be taken seriously. Get help 24/7 by calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK. Help is also available online at Trained consultants will provide free and confidential crisis counseling to anyone in need.**

This year, LDS Daily interviewed a group of members who had been affected by suicide. Watch the trailer for the series below. You can watch all of the videos here.
