Episode 36: Mormonism and mental illness

This week, Cari and Kelsae discuss several mental health disorders and how Mormonism feeds into them. Mormonism is the worst. So is mental illness. Sorry if you, like us, have both. CONTENT WARNING: general discussions and mentions (no explicit details) of sexual assault, rape, self harm, suicidal ideation, and suicide attempt.
