Mental health and seeking help when needed plays an important in Islam. Stigmatisation of those affected has no place in Islam. Even prophets went through periods of time where they suffered through grief and anxiety. The Prophet ﷺ himself experienced grief so intense after the passing of his beloved wife Khadijah (R.A.) and his uncle, Abu Talib, paired with the social and economic boycott of Mulims in Makkah, that the entire year was coined The Year of Sorrow.
Not only does Islam acknowledge it, but it offers ways to treat it through patience, prayer and shikr, in addition to seeking professional help such as at the Muslim Youth Helpline.

One of the most powerful ways one help improve their mental health is through constant dua. The Dhikr & Dua App helps us read duas to help us heal based on our emotions felt.

Bridging the gap between Islamic practices and mental health support is Ruh Care, with their app allowing users to track their emotions and read and listen up on how to deal with stress whilst offering support through their therapists.

Supporting each other as a community and family is among the most important factors in helping solve mental health issues. The Prophet ﷺ said: “Whoever relieves the hardship of a believer in this world, Allah will relieve his hardship on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever helps ease one in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this world and in the Hereafter. Whoever conceals the faults of a Muslim, Allah will conceal his faults in this world and in the Hereafter. Allah helps the servant as long as he helps his brother.
