Imagine what you wish Muslim leaders would do. Now imagine you have someone doing that well. Now imagine that this person who filled the needed role and was greatly impactful is using his position to harm others and serve himself. The altruistic veneer is a way to simply serve himself.

Cultural intelligence in Mental health Care (Level 1)

Across 2 days, mental health practitioners and sector professionals undertook a 2 Day virtual training program that used the Cultural intelligence (CQ) model to explore culturally intelligent mental health care with Muslim clients. This 6 module webinar explored concepts such as:
How do the concepts of mental ill-health and wellbeing differ among people from different cultural backgrounds?

How does therapist racial awareness and cultural competence influence the success of therapy for the clients we work with?

How do Muslims conceptualise symptoms of mental ill-health and what types of help-seeking and coping behaviours might they draw on?

Level 2 of the course builds on the foundations of level 1 and you can find more information on our website and socials in the coming days.
