Generalised Anxiety is one of the most common mental health conditions across the globe affecting both Muslims and non-Muslims. It is  massively misunderstood, perceived incorrectly as spiritual weakness, and often the advice and rituals provided for this can escalate the struggles of those experiencing Generalised Anxiety. It can be exceptionally difficult to relate to others and Islam, seek support, validation or receive empathy and acknowledgement. 

Often, those experiencing symptoms of Generalised Anxiety are made to think that they have low iman and not enough tawakkul in Allah. Even though these symptoms cause extreme uncertainty and distress with normal day-to-day living as a Muslim, they go beyond the normal nature of worrying or ‘feeling a bit anxious’. This difficulty can be further escalated when you are told your faith is not good enough and you may face repercussions for having these worries, which leads to more distress and harm on one’s mental health.

At Inspirited Minds, we get it. We know that it’s not easy to confide in others, or sometimes even attend mosque or a religious event. We’ll never pretend to truly understand your experiences but we are determined to help you find meaning and learning in what you are experiencing, and most importantly, for you to be able to say “Allah Loves Me” and believe it.

We have listened to your requests and are pleased to announce our third 6-week support groups of 2023. These support groups have been exclusively developed by qualified individuals in the field, and guided by people of Islamic knowledge with years of experience. This support group will be focused on Generalised Anxiety  and will be held weekly on Zoom

If you are someone who has been diagnosed with or experiences symptoms of Generalised Anxiety, and also: 

  • Is unsure of how to maintain a healthy relationship with Allah (SWT)
  • Wants to be able to be a Muslim without feeling guilty, distressed or burdened
  • Feels they are ready to prioritise their mental health and wellbeing as a Muslim
  • Wants to work with and hear from other people who are on similar journeys
  • Wants to have a different understanding of the self and Islam than what is currently available

Then this support group is an investment in this world and the next.

By attending all 6 weeks you will:

  • Learn about the nature of Generalised Anxiety, its different presentations, including the difference between simply worrying or being anxious and dehabilitating anxiety
  • Covering common myths and misunderstandings associated with Generalised Anxiety and Islam
  • Using Prophetic stories and from the Sahaba and how you can utilise their experiences in your coping, as well as differentiate between normal worry and Generalised Anxiety

  • Weekly activities that explore an ayah, a name of Allah, Quranic stories and other Islamic examples that is beneficial for our awareness, mindfulness, grounding and to build a better relationship between our mental health and our deen
  • Understand the CBT model and Person Centred approaches to understand how your thinking and behaviour patterns work, and figure out ways to break negative cycles
  • The purpose of emotions, identifying positive, negative, comfortable and uncomfortable ones and how we can manage them

  • Weekly homework that will motivate you to try different exercises and activities to reflect and build on and so much more!

Each attendee will be provided with a free toolkit at the end of the support group which consists of:
