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. Through this partnership, we developed a resource called 'The Qur'an & Emotional Health: An Introduction'.
The resource was co-produced 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.
We also developed bespoke local versions for several areas of the country and local Mind staff have been trained to use the booklet to support the emotional needs of local Muslim communities.
Our local Minds provide mental health services in local communities across England and Wales. Find out if there's a local Mind where you live.
