Poor mental health is a global problem and a leading cause of disability and premature death. Whilst faith can help to address mental health problems, it can also contribute to them. Additionally, the circumstances facing some Muslims can affect their mental health, e.g. refugee status.
Research shows that Muslims in Britain are under-referred to mainstream services for mental health problems. When they do access services, their rates of improvement are lower. Better awareness of Muslim experiences of mental health may lead to more effective support for Muslim communities.
