I like the things the Rabbi said and every needs to hear that, especially if they are suffering.

I am, however, concerned that some may see this as making light of mental illness. The boy was healed of his pain instantaneously? I know this was not the intention, but I wouldn't share this video. I feel it downplays the medical condition that caused him to try to commit suicide. As someone who has been treated for PTSD since my teens, it helps to be reminded how loved and needed I am by Hashem, and that has led me to keep seeking help, and the message of helping in the community and having a purpose, but one also needs to seek treatment that Hashem has provided through therapy, medications, support groups, etc. Reply
