The BEST-SELLING, #1 NEW RELEASE When All Hope Seems Lost: A Gospel Perspective on Mental Illness in Youth is AVAILABLE NOW.

Everyone experiences anxiety, depression, and other difficult emotions. So how do we know if it’s more than that? Who can help guide us to determine if our experience is an actual mental illness? And why is it harder to feel God’s love when I struggle emotionally? Kyle Bradford Jones, MD answers these and other questions in this critical primer for teenagers and their parents who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Dr. Jones explores multiple mental illnesses, including their origins, treatments, and how they relate to our relationship with Jesus Christ, in an understandable and often entertaining way. Mental illness is not the result of a lack of faith or gratitude, nor does it mean that God hates you. The most important message from this book is that Jesus loves you no matter what, always and forever!


“Dr. Jones speaks from his personal and professional experience with wit and optimism. His interviews with teenagers and other mental health experts introduce a critical basis for gospel truths that we all need to understand. These insights will help us minister to ourselves and those around us as Jesus does. This book is a must-read for all teens, anyone who knows a teen, and anyone who admits to once being a teen.”

John Bytheway

“For youth suffering with mental illness, hope is the most important resource. In this deeply sensitive and compassionate book, Kyle Bradford Jones offers hope in abundance by sharing cutting-edge knowledge, personal experience and his firm faith that “we all possess the divinity to overcome our challenges with the Savior’s help.” Highly recommended for any parent, family member or friend of a young person struggling to understand and heal from the growing scourge of mental illness.”

Zachary Davis, Executive Director of Faith Matters and Editor of Wayfare Magazine

“Kyle teaches us that learning about mental illness makes us more Christlike — and the reasons why shine brightly in this necessary book. In an approachable, uplifting, and relatable format, Kyle Jones offers much needed mental health education for adolescents and their parents who are navigating the challenges of today’s world. In language that is easy to understand, Kyle addresses myths surrounding mental health and offers compassionate, scientific explanations for common mental health struggles like depression, anxiety, and OCD. Using stories from church history and other teens, he provides insight and encouragement for those who are struggling or love someone who is struggling with mental illness. I recommend this book to anyone who is hoping to understand mental illness through a loving, hopeful lens and wants to help shift harmful narratives about mental and emotional struggles.”
