The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Slough marked World Mental Day 2020 on October 10th by arranging a special forum on Mental Health Awareness alongside providing support to the homeless community and vulnerable members in the local town.
With mental health being a very tangible and real issue in society, particularly moreso since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, and following the recent guidance of His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the local Slough chapter arranged a special forum where a professional consultant psychiatrist addressed the participants on the types of mental health conditions that exist alongside the ways and means to tackle such conditions in society.
President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Slough, Atiq-Ahmad Bhatti said: “The coronavirus pandemic has left so many feeling confused, alone, and difficult financial and social circumstances. Our commitment is to help as much as we can to help alleviate their worries and anxieties and this forum was just one small way of reaching out to the community and giving out the message that we are here to help, support and comfort them during this unprecedented times.”
