Two McMaster graduate students were wrapping up a community presentation on mental health when members of the audience began approaching them, in tears.I wonder how much longer they'll be once they discover they've only led to the potential for osteoporosis? Such a sad case, it's not even funny. The halal customs are less healthy than kashrut, but I'm sure they never bothered to bring that up.
The audience had just experienced an eye-opening discussion in which some had learned that symptoms they had battled privately were in fact the hallmarks of recognized conditions such as depression and anxiety, and that treatment was readily available.
For the first time, someone had told them they were not alone and that they were not to blame.
The presentation had been organized by a group of McMaster graduate students who for the past year have been visiting Muslim organizations from Hamilton to Toronto to talk about healthy active living in a religious and cultural context.
"When we said there's treatment and help available for you, they were so relieved," said Kashmala Qasim, a member of the group. She and her fellow presenter pointed out there were religious supplications available for anxiety and depression, in conjunction with psychotherapy. "We put science and Islam together and they were really relieved."
