Meet the Expert Webinar
The Institute of Muslim Mental Health proudly hosts a two part webinar series in which scholars share their expertise to community members and mental health professionals, respectively. The Meet the Expert-Public series is open to the public and features a clinician scholar who will provide a brief overview on his or her expertise then answer questions of registered participants. The Meet the Expert-Pro is intended for mental health professionals to be updated on the latest developments in the respective topics.
Our Work-in-Progress (WIP) program provides guidance and mentorship to early career researchers. Our Work in Progress Program is designed to cultivate and support such work. Graduate students, fellows, and junior faculty will be provided with an opportunity to present their work over Zoom to our group of core faculty and trainees. The forum is safe, private space for investigators to receive constructive methodological, theoretical, and subject matter feedback. We welcome WIP presentations at various stages from generating aims to interpreting results of analysis. If the work is already published, then it’s no longer “in progress”.
The core faculty bring diverse methodological and subject matter expertise and is invested in the success of your work. Core faculty have extensive experience in grant and journal peer review. Your work and presentation will not be shared with others outside the meeting.

Islamic counselling is centred in the understanding that people matter; as such it is deeply spiritual and therefore personal. There are many different models of counselling, and even different versions of Islamic Counselling, but our Islamic counselling is based on the truth that there is more to human beings than what's on the surface.
