Mental illness is culturally influenced, and to conduct clinical assessments, form diagnostic opinions, and formulate health policy that affects people from different communities, the historical and social nuances of the culture must be well understood. The Journal of Muslim Mental Health provides an academic forum to explore social, cultural, historical, religious, and psychological factors related to the mental health of Muslims in North America as well as that of the global Islamic community. To this end, the Journal welcomes contributions across the medical and social science disciplines, including psychiatry, psychology, public health, Islamic studies, nursing, social work, sociology, anthropology, philosophy and other fields interested in mental health and the Muslim community.
