Do you think people with mental health problems such as depression and PTSD are without faith?


often times, when someone says "I am sad"- " I am tired"- "I am having nightmares because of the past"- or I am plagued with flashbacks and hallucinations because of traumatic experiences; we often hear the answer "just pray- it will all go away- just have faith"---- however, there are those, even those who are Christian enough, still experience such situation amidst persevering in prayer. Would you say that these individuals are faithless just because their depression or their situation does not go away just like that? Is it even a helpful advice or is it a form of ridicule?
