To support Mental Health Awareness Week (15-21 May 2023), the National NHS Muslim Network invite you to attend our Mental Health Awareness Event. This year the theme is ‘anxiety’.
Date: Wednesday, 17 May 2023
We all feel anxious from time to time. Anxiety is a natural response to the uncertain world around us but it’s important that we recognise and respond when we feel anxious, so that our anxiety doesn’t become overwhelming.
We will be joined by guest speakers, which include Khaleel Kassim, International Islamic Councellor and Mental Health Consultant, Eclectic House, and our very own Helen Campbell, Head of Allyship, Wellbeing and Talent Development.
For anyone experiencing mental ill-health, please see below resources:
