The first UK National Muslim Mental Health Awards set for this December

Be sure to be a part of the UK’s first ever National Muslim Health Awards ceremony and event, taking place on the 21st of December!

/

This December 21st will see the first ever national awards ceremony for Muslim mental health practitioners in London. This ceremony will celebrate the achievements of eight mental health professionals who come from the Muslim community, and is a groundbreaking and historic move towards better understanding how important our mental health practitioners are.

The ceremony will take place at the Maryam Centre at the East London Mosque, and is an all-day event with numerous speakers and events as well. Organized by Penny Appeals’ leading educational project, Alif Institute, this event is also hosted by the British Islamic Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (BIPCA).

There will be 9 award categories named after influential trailblazers in this field, which will be:

  • The Aisha Utz Award for outstanding work on research
  • The Al-Ghazzali Award for outstanding teaching
  • The Al-Balkhi Award for outstanding work in the workplace
  • The Anna Freud Award for outstanding work with children
  • The Ibn-Sina Award for outstanding work in academia
  • The Al-Rumi Award for outstanding work in spirituality
  • The Al-Razi Award for outstanding community work
  • The Mary Calkins Award for outstanding work on mental health advocacy
  • The Lady Zainab Cobbold Award, sponsored by Dome Tours. This winner will be given the opportunity to be a part of a project that looks at mental health while performing hajj/umrah.

Alif Institute is a non-for-profit, offering services for Islamic Counselling. BIPCA is a professional association for those involved in counselling and mental health professions within the Muslim community. Marzuqa Karima, the Project Manager of Alif Institute and BIPCA, stated:

[This project] is to recognise the crucial work of our mental health practitioners, and the positive impact it is having on the population’s mental well-being.”
