Five Ways to Wellbeing and Islam

COVID-19 has impacted the whole world; for almost everyone, life has had to change profoundly with an increase in a range of mental health conditions for adults, from low wellbeing, sleep problems and anxiety to depression. In response the Good Thinking team has been making changes to the service to offer better support to Muslim communities in London.

Endorsed by the Muslim Council for Britain, British Islamic Medical Association and The British Board of Scholars and Imams, the Five Ways to Wellbeing and Islam will be available in seven languages English, Bengali, Gujarati, Urdu, Somali, Hindi and Arabic.

These resources have been developed by mental health professionals and practicing Muslims to meet the growing demand for mental health support across London and its diverse communities and to also urge the Muslim community to be more aware of the five steps to improve mental health and wellbeing, as recommended by the NHS. These are also things encouraged in Islamic teachings.

The issue of mental health is real and should not be taken lightly. For those who are facing any kind of mental health issues, do not be afraid and seek professional help. There is no harm and shame in doing this, there’s always help around the corner.
