Who are we
We are Muslims who aim to follow the Quran and Sunnah with the understanding of the Salaf (the righteous predecessors, for example the Companions Messenger of Allah Muhammad ﷺ).
In adhering to this methodology, we would want to help our local community.
We come from a broad set of backgrounds and have a wide breadth of experiences. We would like to leverage these experiences to assist, where possible, our brothers and sisters, inshAllah.
What do we want
Muslim Support was established to provide moral support and guidance for our communities at large when dealing with the every day trials, especially the challenge and stigma of Mental Health Conditions, for example;
- ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)
- Eating Disorders
- Autism (in itself not a mental health condition)
- Learning difficulties
- OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
Whilst we do not provide any clinical or medical diagnosis or treatment, we are equipped to provide advice to families, they desperately in need of, in terms of information around the spectrum of conditions that often leave them with no real understanding of how, why, and where to get the right help.
Our ultimate goal is the provision of education and support services that will empower our communities, to better understand the topic of mental health, whilst explaining the various routes that can be taken to seek out professional help.
We firmly believe that no one, let alone entire families should suffer in silence and are on hand to offer advice that is so badly needed, especially given the current societal pressures we all face. In line with our spiritual values, we advocate a holistic approach to these problems in attempting to overcome or simply understand and manage a condition.
Whether the individual is a child or elderly, help should always be sought and provided.
