The Muslim Mind Collaborative (MMC) has been formed as a result of years of research and community consultations conducted into the mental health and wellbeing of British Muslims and drawing on academia, statutory services, community practitioners, faith leaders, faith-led and psychotherapy services and those with lived experiences. Our aim is to widen the parameters of the agenda on mental health to consider the needs of faith.

“Be a part of this much needed initiative and help create a change by joining Muslim Mind, which aims to build a collaborative of faith-based and mental health service providers, community leaders and professionals, that highlight, advocate for support the mental health and positive wellbeing of Muslim communities across the UK.“ – Rt Hon. Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP,  Shadow Minister for Mental Health

Launched in 2021 by the Better Community Business Network, Director and Founder, Sabah Gilani OBE



We seek to maintain a community-centric approach, integrating local, regional and national services under a common purpose, to improve health outcomes for marginalised and under-represented communities.

Building a legacy

By doing so, we hope to put Muslims and faith communities on the map, to lead on our own narrative and improve the way mainstream and public services engage and respond. We hope to build a lasting legacy of appropriate mental health and wellbeing support for Muslim communities across the UK.

Increase engagement

We want to enhance community efforts through recognition, signposting and integrating faith-based and community services into mainstream and statutory services, to increase access and engagement.


Working together to change minds

We work for the improvement of faith literacy in mental health services by sharing ideas, recommendations, insights and opportunities
