***Important Reminder from the Community Director***
Mayo Clinic Connect's Community Guidelines offer 10 short rules of conduct that help keep the Mayo Clinic Connect community safe, supportive, inclusive, and respectful. https://connect.mayoclinic.org/page/about-connect/tab/community-guidelines/

I'd like to draw your attention specifically to guideline 2 regarding respect and being inclusive.
2. Remain respectful at all times.
- Exercise tolerance and respect toward other participants whose views may differ from your own. Disagreements are fine, but mutual respect is a must.
- Be inclusive. Not everyone shares the same religious or political beliefs. Don't impose your beliefs on others.

For some faith is integral to health and healing; for others this may not be the case. For those who wish to continue the conversation about faith, religion and mental health, please participate in another discussion by clicking this link https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/how-spirituality-can-help-stress/

Thanks very much Colleen. It can often be difficult to be the one to have to bring things like this to people's attention. I myself am not religious however, I can appreciate it; and am happy that folks have found what they needed at that time in religion. However, when most of all of the responses continue on that particular path it begins to make me feel like this is clearly not the place for me to come to for help or contribute with such issues any longer. Don't get me wrong, I like to hear about peoples' experiences, i.e. what has and hasn't helped them etc. However, it seems that whenever a board starts on the "path of religion" , it is very hard to get beyond that going forward.
So once again, I thank you for the reminder. As I think it is important that we hear from "Everyone" as we all know, what may work for one, may not work for another!
