Group of attendees from Muslim Mental Health Conference

Development of the Consortium:

Muslims are currently one of the most vulnerable populations that are facing unique mental health challenges. The challenges of globalization have increased the importance of cultural diversity for both our country and our discipline. In recognition of this fact, the Psychiatry Department at Michigan State University launched a Muslim Mental Health initiative including our conference and journal, which is jointly funded by the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Office of Research. A primary goal of this interdisciplinary initiative is to take advantage of the existing expertise within MSU and from across the country in order to advance the goals of Muslim Mental Health.

Special Activities:

  • Journal of Muslim Mental Health
  • Annual Muslim Mental Health Conference
  • Global Muslim Mental Health Conferences
  • Training of Faith Leaders
  • Certification and Course Development
  • Community outreach
  • Specify clinics who can promote the work locally and across the US
