Mental Health within the Muslim Community Podcast

I’m depressed because I’m low in Iman.” “Religious people can’t experience mental health issues.” “Suicide has nothing to do with the Muslim community.” When it comes to the relationship between mental health and faith, I guess there’s a lot that has been said, some of which is true and some of which needs correction. It’s a topic that has long been riddled with confusion, debate, and much misconception. In this Podcast, we sit down with Ziyad Serhan an accredited mental health educator who co-founded the organisation Educaid to help shed light on mental health within the community. It’s an insightful discussion and one that we found deeply enlightening and challenging. We hope you enjoy the episode.
