I am extremely fortunate to work with some of the most amazing people advocating for the LDS/Mormon community from a mental health perspective. We spent yesterday and today working as a board to get this statement released. We work hard to balance within our community a respectful approach to values and faith while not backing away from our ethical responsibility to present evidence-based, health centered practices.
Please share as a resource where appropriate.
