Here Are 5 Resources You Can Count On for Mental Health

In the Muslim community there exists a pervasive stigma surrounding discussions on mental health hindering open conversations and leading to the attribution of our struggles to unrelated factors. However, in recent years a remarkable shift has occurred in the approach towards mental health, not only within our community, but also among others. To support individuals facing such challenges, we have curated a comprehensive list of organizations where you can foster connections with like-minded individuals and discover valuable resources tailored to your specific needs. Remember, you are never alone on this journey.

1. Institute for Muslim Mental Health

With a wide range of services, they strive to provide comprehensive assistance, including an enriching mentorship program for students. Through this program, students can openly share their work and receive valuable feedback from esteemed mental health professionals. If you seek reliable and peer-reviewed resources, their blog and journal are excellent platforms to explore.

2. Institute for social policy

The Institute for Social Policy and Understanding conducts research on the challenges the Muslim community faces in relation to their mental health.
