I voted no, because I don't think drawing will solve your problems or help them. Coming from my point of view, the problem won't go away just because you drew a daisy or something like that. The only way to get rid of a problem is to attack it head on, not procrastinate by drawing. I mean seriously, just think of all the time you wasted drawing instead of trying to deal with your problem. It seems crazy to me! But this is just my opinion.
I put other because it kind of depends on what hard time you're going through and how it affects you. For example, like with depression, it causes some people to lose interest in the things they once loved to do. So if art is your passion, and you lose interest in it because of something like depression, its neither helping nor making things worse. It's just sort of forgotten and pushed aside until the bad times finally end or don't.
I voted other. Sometimes producing a piece of work helps to explore a topic and/or express emotions or themes running through one's life that are difficult to otherwise articulate. On the other hand art is for many a vocation. I take great joy in practicing art to improve my technique, to tell a story, or explore and interact with this deeply diverse subject.
Well i guess it somewhat helps mainly because when I look at the work of others it puts my in the state of awe and enlightment to see the creativity of every artist here and as for my drawings I just enjoy how my characters look so much better when they're on paper rather than being in my head all day. But the joy of drawing is what I love the most.
I am currently going through depression and bipolar disorder and so I find that creating what my mind conceives gives me a sort of passage or trap which takes my problems and horrors and moves them out of my mind.
