The Devil Made Me Do It: Mental illness and the Muslim community.

Posted by

Islam and mental illness. Stigma, it seems, is a universal language.


  1. A page that is advocating support for those with mental illness and the removal of the stigma around it and suicide was visited by a Muslim Arabic woman who proceeded to say that suicide is for cowards. When advised that her words were judgemental and not welcome she to made a similar reference that if a person believed in ‘God/Allah’ then they shall be totally okay. They have no clue. Admittedly she apologised for upsetting us but people just think it’s a blanket approach. Religion fixes everything. Well it doesn’t. And never will.
