Don’t sacrifice your mental health this Eid

We live in an incredibly stressful time. Politics, work, university, school, the pressure to perform, family pressures, social media, not to mention the anxiety and pressure that comes with being a Muslim in this day and age entails - all of this adds to the burden of mental ill health we experience. We all sacrifice our mental health sometimes, when we burn out at work because of heavy workloads and deadlines, when we burn out at home because we’ve been looking after everyone but ourselves first.

At Muslim Youth Helpline we see the consequences of young people putting their mental health on the back-burner. This Eid, let's try and raise awareness of how you can make your mental health a priority, making you more resilient and able to work better, be more spiritually connected, and live better.

You’ll see lots of positive mental health tips and tricks on our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages this Dhul-Hijjah, as we try to reach as many people as possible with the message:

Don’t sacrifice your mental health this Eid.

Help us to raise awareness of mental health this Eid by taking up the £3 challenge.

This means donating just £1 per day for three days, on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th. LaunchGood are giving prizes to the causes with the highest number of donors in one day.

Also, if we manage to raise £9,000, an anonymous donor will add the final £1,000 to take us to an incredible £10,000!

We’ll use the donations to run the helpline service, making sure that those in emotional distress have someone to talk to when they need it the most. We’ll also use it to fund our upcoming student campaign, reaching 10,000 students over one month as we work with ISOCs, MSCs, Mental Health Societies, Colleges, Community Centres and Mosques, to ensure that our youth know how to recognise the signs of mental ill health like anxiety, depression and suicidal feelings, how to deal with them in a healthy way, and most importantly, how to prevent these issues happening in the first place.

Please click here to donate your £1 on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th, and Insha'Allah we will make it to our campaign goal.

Remember: Don’t sacrifice your mental health this Eid.
