Breaking the Barriers of Mental Health
In the Muslim community, mental illness is often perceived as a taboo subject. Shame, embarrassment, and fear of what others may think often prevents those within the community from seeking help and leaves many issues unaddressed.
It’s time to break the stigma and start a conversation.
Join us on Sunday, October 25 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET, along with ASPIRE in Vancouver B.C, to tackle the ever-growing struggles in the Muslim community revolving around mental illness. We will discuss the harms of mental illness along with how to tackles these issues from both a religious and consultative perspective. We will be joined by:
– Mainu Ahmed, Director of ASPIRE
– Mobina Hasan, Resource Manager and
– Anum Gul, Registered Professional Counsellor
– Imam Nabil Khan, National Zakat Foundation Regional Representative
Mental health is real, and we need to do our part to break the stereotypes and the barriers that prevent those who are suffering in silence from seeking help.
