Dear Father,

It's common for people to come to you for confession and spiritual advice; however, to holistically heal their wounds, it is imperative to be able to identify if and when someone is suffering from a mental health condition, such as anxiety, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

Watch the short video below by Professor of Psychology Dr. Paul C. Vitz to learn why priests and religious leaders should learn psychology, especially as it relates to helping parishioners deal with their everyday problems.
