We are currently seeking Muslims who have been through difficulties and challenges with their mental health to contribute to this pocketbook of hope;
CONTACT US HERE if you’d like to find out how to get involved
Why is this important?
This groundbreaking book in this wonderful series is aimed at breaking the silence and stigma in Muslim communities around mental health issues, providing a platform to share recovery stories and giving hope and inspiration to our friends, families and communities. All contributions will be published on the #EmergingProud blog, and with enough contributors we will be able to publish both a hard copy and EBook which can then be circulated far and wide inshaAllah!
If you would like further information on how to go about writing your story for the blog please CONTACT US HERE
If you are feeling unsure about sharing your story openly please take some time to read our first set of stories below; we hope you will see that the bravery of these women to be vulnerable and share some of their experiences is one that will lead to building greater understanding, compassion, and hope for our communities especially in the challenges we face as Muslims in the modern world today. Sharing human pain will connect us, helping to build bridges and end the stigmas we face. If you decide to share, you will be supported along the process.
Dr Sara Betteridge instigated this innovative book, and you can read her personal story here;
Sara says; If you have found my story important and inspiring please continue to read these courageous stories below from people who have lived experience of these issues and I’m sure you will find their journey’s of recovery both inspiring and full of hope. Please share the stories to encourage others to come forward and share their experiences and add to this project of transformation and hope.
