The history of Muslims addressing mental health extends back to Prophetic times, and to inform our current practice and future we must acknowledge the lessons of the past and as we look towards the future. This year’s conference aims to acknowledge and celebrate our history in the field of Muslim mental health, highlight and share our current insights and wisdom, and set our sights on the future of the field of Muslim Mental Health.

We seek abstracts related to mental health from clinical practitioners, researchers, and those engaged in community work/policy. We welcome proposals from diverse disciplines, including, but not limited to, social work, counseling, psychology, psychiatry, psychotherapy, health technology, law, chaplaincy, and community workers.
