Mental Health Awareness and Support - Inspirited Minds
Inspirited Minds is an Islamic grassroots mental health charity founded in 2014. Our aims are to raise awareness of mental health within our communities; combat stigma, provide resources and training to empower our community members and provide professional, non-judgemental, confidential support and hope from a faith and culturally sensitive perspective to those struggling with their mental health and wellbeing.
Our initial research showed many Muslims found it difficult to seek help as they felt they would not be understood by non-faith based services, thus they chose to remain quiet and not seek support. We are here to change this and cater for this need. We are passionate to build a society where people experiencing mental health challenges are validated and empowered to live fulfilling lives.
Our core values form the foundation, beliefs and principles that lie at the heart of our organisation: ICARE
Islamic - We are inspired anchored and guided by our faith, which illuminates why we do what we do.
Compassionate - We attend to the needs of every person with sensitivity, empathy and kindness.
Ambitious - We are determined to go the extra mile and make a lasting difference.
