Early Return LDS Missionaries - Anxiety and Depression Resources

Many people don't understand depression and anxiety. I get it.  If you, or someone you love, haven't experienced it personally it is easy to misjudge and think someone can just overcome it with a positive attitude.

Signs of Depression
  • A persistent sad, helpless, hopeless, or worthless feeling.
  • Decreased energy and motivation, and increased fatigue.
  • A loss of interest in activities one used to enjoy.
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions.
  • Appetite change and weight loss or gain.
  • Trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up.
  • Thoughts about death and suicide.
Here are some informative articles, videos, blog posts and podcasts that may help provide some understanding about depression, anxiety, and early returned missionaries.
