6 Week Depression Support Group for Muslims 

Zoom Webinar

Monday, 12:00AM to 12:00AM
January 30, 2023


Sign up deadline: 29th January 2023

Depression in the Muslim community is rife, and experienced in a unique way compared to others due to the misunderstandings, and silenced nature of simply experiencing mental health issues as Muslims. It can be exceptionally difficult to relate to others, seek supportvalidation or receive empathy and acknowledgement.

It can be frustrating to never feel understood or constantly feel the need to justify, or water down what it is you are feeling and thinking, never being truly honest with yourself or others. This difficulty can be further escalated when your faith is not considered part of your wellbeing journey, or it is even attacked or blamed for what you are experiencing.

At Inspirited Minds, we get it. We know that every one of you is different, and therefore your experiences are different. We’ll never pretend to truly understand your experiences because that’s unique to you, but we do get it and we are determined to help you through this. To find meaning and learning in what it is your are experiencing, and most importantly, for you to be able to say “I am winning”.

We have listened to your requests and concerns, and will be launching a series of in person and virtual 6 week support groups in 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. The first of these support groups will be focused on Depression for Muslims and will be held weekly via Zoom.

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

  • Feels they are ready to prioritise their mental health and wellbeing
  • Wants to work with and hear from other people who are on similar journeys
  • Is unsure of how Islam fits into their mental health, OR feels that their faith is a huge part of their wellbeing
  • Wants to have a different understanding of their self 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

  • Further your understanding of depression, how it presents for you, relates to your experiences, different ways of coping and symptoms of Depression in Islamic history
  • Understand the Islamic Concept of hardship including Prophetic stories and from the Sahabah and how you can utilise their experiences in your coping
  • Learn and explore different and unique narratives that the Qur’an and Sunnah offers, through a mental health/wellbeing lens, unavailable elsewhere
  • 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
  • Learn the Sunnah ways of wellbeing, and multiple different exercises and activities that can help you on a daily basis

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