Addressing Mental Health by Erich W. Kopischke and Is There No Balm In Gilead by Brent H. Nielson
I was asked to teach a lesson on these two talks from October 2021 General Conference so I’ve had a chance to spend a lot of time with them and there are some really great quotes.
Lesson Help Worksheet
I also included a “worksheet” I made for the lesson. I felt that the main goal of both talks was that we educate ourselves on mental health and what it means for Christ to be the “balm in Gilead”. The goal of the worksheet was to write down ideas on what they felt they needed to learn in each category. I also encouraged them to think about a specific situation or question in their personal lives and write down and information that would help them find answers for it.
You can find the link to download the worksheet below. It is a pdf sized to fit a standard 8.5×11 paper.

Such a incredible truth all wrapped up in an easy to remember phrase! “Information precedes inspiration and revelation.” I couldn’t help but make a variation of this one. Feel free to use it as a background on your phone or share with others.
This highlights another important piece of understanding. “Focusing on growth is healthier than obsessing over our shortcomings.” It reminds me of the idea of growth mindset. If you haven’t ever come across it before I highly recommend learning more about growth mindset in the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck. It has had a profound influence on me and how I parent and face trials. (PS I am an affiliate on Amazon. You don’t pay any extra, but I get a small kick back for referring an item. Thanks!)
I highly encourage reading and studying both the talks. They were incredible! These talks can be found on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Website.
