  3. How Mosques are dealing with Muslim Mental Health Issues This is a link to a very good article which touches upon how Mosques in the U.S. are addressing and dealing with Mental Health issues amongst their members. Its provides some great details about how the Ummah here is moving past the old stigmas and embracing them with the proper relevance and weight that the situations require. It provides some great links to resources and organizations that are there to help.
  4. We all need a little checkup every now and then.... The brain is a physical organ just like any other part of the body...

  6. Recently (July 26, 2018) there was a post at the Wall Street Journal that I would like to point out. Along with regular exercise, a healthy sleep pattern, seeing a therapist and taking your medication if prescibed, there are some foods that some doctors recommend. Nutritional-psychiatry specialists Dr. Uma Naidoo of Harvard Medical School and Dr. Drew Ramsey of Columbia University have recommended the following nutrient-dense foods that fight agains anxiety and depression. BEANS such as small red beans contain B vitamins, thiamine, iron and magnesium. FERMENTED FOODS such as kimchi and pickles contain probiotics. FRUITS such as berries and avocados (yes, that’s a fruit) contain potassium, B vitamins, vitamin C and magnesium. LEAFY GREENS such as spinach and kale contain magnesium, iron, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin E and B vitamins. LEGUMES such as lentils contain magnesium, B vitamins, zinc and iron. MEATS such as grass-fed beef and organ meats contain vitamin A, B vitamins, zinc and iron. NUTS AND DRUPES such as walnuts and cashews contain magnesium, omega-3 fats, zinc, B vitamins, vitamin E and selenium. OILS such as olive and fish contain omega-3 fats and vitamin E. SEAFOOD such as wild salmon and anchovies contain zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega- 3 fats, magnesium and selenium. SEEDS such as sunflower and chia contain vitamin E, vitamin B1, magnesium, zinc and omega 3 fats. SPICES such as ginger and turmeric contain magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin B1 and vitamin E. WHOLE GRAINS such as quinoa, farro and wild rice contain zinc, iron, vitamin B1, selenium and magnesium. https://www.wsj.com/articles/feed-your-head-foods-that-target-depression-and-anxiety-1532629120
  7. There has been a constant supply of research about vitamins and minerals, along with good nutrition, that leads me to believe that a multi-vitamin with minerals "daily supplement" is wajib.
  8. ^^^^^ Will not a multi-vitamin with minerals -like for us old dotards- work just as well?
  9. R these really conncented ? :| I mean these r totally different but depression is more common among those ADHD ppl . Cuz basically they stick to an issue n think n kinda overthink about it! So I guess that s y it s more common among them. Plus it would be much reasonable if they said depression's more common among ADD ppl instead of ADHD ppl
  10. For a period of time in my life, i had undergone severe anxiety and depression. This caused me to start to have splits in my personality, at a time of severe upheaval of my life. Looking back now, i do not recognise the person i was, nor do i believe it was ever representative of me. Despite taking responsibility, it is so important to acknowledge mental health, particularly one caused by severe trauma in ones life, can take someone who otherwise was walking on firm ground and unbalance them. May Allah help all those going through or have been through any mental health problem. May he help you become stronger, and grow, and learn, and like Hurr, be willing to change for the better.
  11. I am so sorry for your loss. In terms of the counselling, it would specifically be bereavement counselling that you would need to help you deal with your loss. If you are in the U.K. the bereavement services provide telephonic support too until you are ready to see someone face to face which they should support you with. When a person suffers loss, they go through many emotions, there's no right or wrong way to feel, rather take each day as it comes and know that time is the best healer. There are stages of grief after a bereavement that have been recognised as: 1. Accepting the reality of your loss 2. Experiencing the pain of the loss 3. Adjusting to life without the lost person 4. Reinvesting in the new reality Psychologists recommend to set aside some time every day to think about the person you have lost. This task will actually allow you to process the loss and work out how to go on living without the person. This will also help you to deal with the overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression/grief to a certain extent during a particular part of the day so you can at least try and have some normality for the rest of the day (studying etc.). This does also depend on how long its been, if it is very fresh then please give yourself time to heal because you will not only have the grief to deal with but the anxiety of how you will get through your studies, therefore do inform your University/academic institution about the situation so if you need to take time off, they are accomodating and understanding. Please don't hesitate to speak to us here on SC. As sister @Hameedeh said, we are here for you, best wishes.
  12. Condolences for the loss of your loved one. Not wanting to get out of bed in the morning is a sure sign that you need to go to a counselor. I think you should force yourself to make that appointment and go to the counselor. Talking about the loss of your loved one will release the bottled up feelings that you have. Tell yourself the counseling session is only a one time thing and if you don't want to go back for a second session, it's not required. Just do it. You also might feel so much better after the counseling that you don't need to go to the counselor again. We are here for you.
  13. Salam May God rest his/ her soul and give you enough power and patience to overcome your grief. I lost someone whom I loved a lot 2 years ago and the only thing which makes me hopeful is that this separation is not eternal and one day I can see him again. We need to remind ourselves that death is just a journey to a better world and we all will exprience it. I dont know how those who dont believe in the next life can be patient when they lost those whom they love.
  14. Hi, I lost someone really dear to me recently and I haven't been dealing well with it i was told to refer to a counselling service but you have to do that yourself and i barely have the energy pr motivation to get up in the morning let alone make an appointment and go out to a place where i have to go and sit and talk to someone about how I'm feeling i know it'll help but just the thought of it drains me i can't bear to imagine actually going there anyway I'm stressed and worried about how this is going to affect my studies because i have assessments coming up and I'm really struggling and its really overwhelming for me to deal with i don't know what to do
  15. Do things for other people. It won't help your loss, but it will help you realize that life goes on and the world still needs you.
  16. Talk on the phone with people you trust, who will let you talk their head off, until you are all talked out and tired of saying the same thing over and over again. It's still in your head, but you don't want to say it to anyone. Take it one day at a time. Escape reality by joining ShiaChat. Keep your mind busy with anything and everything. It's hard. You just keep going.
  17. I'm going to say something which might make sense to a few but might go over the heads of some too. Humans, we are created from clay. Like pottery, however, you move your hands you create different shapes of pots. Humans are similar in that aspect, we shape the way we become after Allah SWT has given us a clean slate (most of us anyway.) The way we chose to surround our selves with specific people or choose how to spend our time, ends up carving the way we feel and think about things. I'd rather not continue with what I'm trying to say since many have found it offensive in the past and called me delusional for it. But that's my 5 L.L.
  18. Eh. Depression and ADHD aren’t really related. Most people who have Depression do not have ADHD - they are just anxious. Extreme anxiety may look like ADHD, but they are two very different mental disorders.
  19. There’s huge amount of stigma and to “pray the depression away” kind of mentality. Sad.
  20. https://www.additudemag.com/adhd-and-depression-symptoms-treatment/ Good article speaking about the connection between Depression and ADHD.
