Working in partnership with Suffolk Mind, we are spreading good practice and knowledge to better engage with local Muslim groups and meet their emotional and mental health needs in a culturally appropriate way. This is mainly done through the development and promotion of a booklet called ‘The Qur’an & Emotional Health: An Introduction’.
This resource has been co-produced working with Islamic scholars, psychologists, Imams and practicing Muslims. Following precedents established in the Qur’an, the resource draws upon the rich heritage of Islamic psychology and modern knowledge of the human givens to meet needs in a culturally appropriate manner.
Bespoke local versions have been developed for several areas of the country and local Mind staff have been trained to use the booklet to support the emotionnal need of local Muslim communities. Local versions are currently available at the following local Minds:
