  1. 1. Moroni 8: 16,17 . . .for perfect lovecasteth out all fear . . And I am filled with charity, which is everlasting love.
  2. 2. Anxiety has now surpassed depression as the most common mental health diagnosis among college students, though depression, too, is on the rise. More than half of students visiting campus clinics cite anxiety as a health concern . . . Nearly one in six college students has been diagnosed with or treated for anxiety within the last 12 months. Hoffman, Jan. Anxious Students Strain College Mental Health Centers (cited in “The New York Times”)
  3. 3. • Medicine • Natural Remedies (acupuncture, yoga, exercise) • Counseling • Meditation/Mindfulness • Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT)
  4. 4. • Accept Thoughts/Feelings • Choose Values • Take Action
  5. 5. Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult—once we truly understand and accept it—then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters. M. Scott Peck “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference” The Serenity Prayer

  14. 14. IF Accept Thoughts PEACE It was meant to be that life would be challenge. To suffer some anxiety, some depression, some disappointment, even some failure is normal. Teach our members that if they have a good, miserable day once in while, or several in a row, to stand steady and face them. Things will straighten out. There is a great purpose in our struggle in life. President Boyd K. Packer
  15. 15. The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
  16. 16. IF Accept Thoughts PEACE [ ] The Golden Mean Courage Caution

  18. 18. IF Accept Thoughts PEACE A pebble held close to the eye appears to be a gigantic obstacle. Cast on the ground, it is seen in perspective. Likewise, [the] problems or trials in our lives need to be viewed in perspective... No matter how difficult something you or a loved one faces, it should not take over your life and be the center of all your interest. Challenges are growth experiences, temporary scenes to be played out on the background of a happy life. Don’t become so absorbed in a single event that you can’t think of anything else or care for yourself or for those who depend upon you. Elder Richard G. Scott

Act your way into feeling good. That's the only way to feel more positively about yourself.” John C. Maxwell “You can't avoid fear. No magic potion will take it away. And you can't wait for motivation to get you going. To conquer fear, you have to feel the fear and take action anyway.” John C. Maxwell
