Mormons who fell dangerously ill on their missions say the church denied them access to medical care.

Mormonism is a cult. http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2015/10/sick_mormon_missionaries_denied_access_to_adequate_health_care.html
"Sick and far from home" Mormon Missionaries receiving inadequate medical care with horrifying, long-term results. I have had this happen to 4 separate relatives on missions. There is no excuse. Make sure the missionaries you know get adequate medical help for both physical and mental ailments.
It’s easy to take all these horror stories as evidence that the church will never change its ways. But from my conversations with nearly two dozen former missionaries, I’m cautiously optimistic that—if enough former missionaries speak out about their experiences—the church could be approaching a turning point. Mormons have no theological objection to medical care, including psychological treatment. The roadblock to proper health care for missionaries isn’t primarily about money...
Sick and Far From Home. This covers an important topic - medical care for Mormon missionaries. It's an excellent article, and worth the read, although I wish it had mentioned how Leadership Roulette plays a role - when how you are treated and the quality of the care you are given access to depends on who your leaders happen to be. While not as extreme as the stories shared in the article, I do have first hand experience with quite a few of the issues discussed, and I served in the states.

Watching the events cascading in Syria makes it eerily easy to see how the political elites of 1914 stumbled into World War I while believing they were pursuing a sensible set of national interests. The parallels are far from precise. The alliances bonding the players in today’s Middle East aren’t...
