Ask Sheri - What are the angels thoughts on mental illness?

Thank you for your question. This is exactly the type of question I like to answer because it can help many people. My own family has suffered from the effects of mental illness, so this is something that is important to me as well. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with autism when he was about four years old, I believe. He can walk on his own, but he cannot bathe himself, brush his own teeth or hair, or perform any of the basic care a human needs. He also cannot talk without the help of a machine. He is about 40 years old now, and I have seen firsthand how having a child and sibling can really take a toll on an individual and family.
