Peace of Mind: Depression and Faith

This seminar covers the sensitive and widely misunderstood concept of depression and mental illness in the light of Islam and modern psychology. Everyone feels sadness from time to time, but for those who develop depression (usually accompanied by it’s not so friendly sidekick Anxiety), it is a very difficult and lonesome struggle which many a time affects faith, family life, and work. Stigma and lack of knowledge from family and friends makes it difficult for those who are depressed to reach out, unfortunately resulting in undue suffering for many. In this seminar we draw the line between sadness and clinical depression. We learn techniques for how to get help and cope with mental illness through the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and modern Psychology.
