Mental Health Conference

Description

This 1.5 day conference is a partnership between Mission of Hope and NSW Service for the Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors

The general theme of the conference explores the mental health concerns of Muslims living in Australia. The immediate objective of the conference is to provide a national forum for clinicians and mental health professionals to engage in meaningful dialogue regarding the issues of mental health as they apply to the diverse Australian Muslim communities.

Clients of Muslim faith and diverse cultures are increasingly accessing mental health services, and they often present with varied explanatory models of mental health, coping, and treatments. Mainstream therapy models against those that aim to capture a holistic therapeutic intervention and clinical approaches will be explored. A critical approach exploring differing models to better serve clients identifying from the Muslim faith will be addressed.

Post September 11 and the socio-political climate have added to the challenges associated with the mental health of Muslims living in Australia, whilst also resulting in stigma and discrimination against Muslims.

The related mental health topics to be addressed at the conference will be specifically targeting Muslim populations, but not limited to these areas: women, men, youth, and children; clinical applications, therapy, & counseling; refugees & asylum seekers; criminal justice issues; Islamophobia & mental health; psychological heath and wellbeing; sexual health; applied therapy models for clinical practice.
