Inspirited Minds was launched in 2014 and is a UK based, registered charity. We aim to aid people who suffer from psychological illnesses via supporting them in a professional and confidential manner. Although Inspirited Minds work predominantly with people from an Islamic faith, this is not exclusive. We do not disregard any persons of differing backgrounds.
Inspirited Minds initiated due to the findings that there was limited help available for Muslim sufferers, specifically. From our research, we found that many people found it difficult to seek help as they felt they will not be understood by someone who doesn’t understand their faith or culture. Thus people chose to remain quiet. We are here to change this and cater for this need.
