Religion and spirituality can play a different role in mental health for each person, and each has the capacity to both harm and heal. Religion/spirituality may seem stifling and confusing at times, especially when viewed as a rigid set of rules. However, religion and spirituality can also bring great comfort and peace. Consider that following a religion is a purely personal choice and there is a lot of personal freedom within it.

It may tarnish it, Religion teaches you to be obedient, to accept claims without evidence, to use faith as a pathway to truth, in doing so it set's you up for you to accept other things in the same way and that may lead to very poor decisions. Reason and evidence, that is the cure for what religion teaches.
