The UEL ISoc invited us to Stratford to deliver a talk on sexual abuse, identity crisis and Islamophobia as part of their Mental Health awareness event in aid of Human Aid. We were joined on the panel with other giants who had incredible stories to share; Shaheen and her experience of domestic violence and anxiety, to eating disorders and Nazia Khatun’s fitness journey. There were professionals including a community psychologist, Nadafia Kausar who spoke about the regression of Muslim communities and their activity with dealing with mental health and what we should be doing, and Saiqa Riad, an NLP practitioner who gave us many practical tips on getting out of our own way and messages to take home.

It was an empowering event, and we pray that the attendees were able to relate and take life-long lessons away and continue to empower themselves and others around them. JazakAllah Khair to UEL ISoc for inviting us to be on the panel, and other speakers for sharing it with us and most importantly the attendees that supported our work and continue to make dua for us.

Meanha Begum is currently studying a degree in Islamic Psychology where she has been given the blessing to explore her passions, Islam and Psychology. 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.
