On 3rd November we were invited to the University of Birmingham by the ISoc to deliver training to the new members of the listening service the society provides. It was a super insightful day where often the trainers learned a lot from the students and their experiences. We talked them through the basics of Islam and Mental Health, our golden history, most common mental health issues, myth busting, and applying this to the student population. We spent a good amount of time on application, through group activities and real-life scenarios where attendees were asked to identify problems, how they would approach it with sensitivity, and the next steps to take.

We also had the pleasure of Sheikh Saeed Nasser from Sandwell joining us to finish off the brilliant day with a massive lift of imaan, hope and sincerity. He spoke to us about how the Prophet (pbuh) cared for people with mental health issues, the etiquettes of looking after others, and managing stress as students.

We wanted to thank the ISoc for inviting us to deliver the training and we pray that Allah rewards them for their efforts and makes the listening service a massive success. JazakAllah Khair to Sheikh Saeed Nasser who was a massive compliment to the day, and we were truly humbled to be in his presence.

She relishes in the insight of an Islamic perspective to incorporate into psychology, to help those who have never been given a chance that every devout muslim, and non muslim deserves. Which is why she considers Inspirited Minds to be a huge blessing in her life. She has been brought up in a heavy western environment, where Islam was once far from her reach, but through trials and tribulations, she has managed to come out stronger and closer to Allah than ever before. It's simply her experiences, ideas, and open nature that pushes her towards wanting to help others out of their vulnerable places, through their journey, and into happiness, with tranquil souls.
