The Harvard Islamic Society invites you to “Healing and Mercy: Mental Wellness and Self-Care and Muslim Communities”. Join us at this dinner to hear about mental health and wellness in the Muslim community, particularly after the 2016 election.
Our keynote speaker will be Kameelah Rashad, Founder and President of Muslim Wellness Foundation (MWF). She also served as the Fellow for Spirituality, Wellness and Social Justice at the University of Pennsylvania where she supported students in their exploration of faith-based activism, spirituality, emotional well-being and healing. Kameelah served three years as the Muslim Chaplain at UPenn and continues to facilitate discussions on religious identity development and challenges faced by American Muslim youth. In addition to Kameelah’s involvement in mental health advocacy and religious life, she is a proud social justice activist. Kameelah is an advisory board member of Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) and the Husayn Center for Social Justice, a Muslim-run social services and advocacy center that promotes health and wellness for the residents of Trenton, NJ.
This event is open to all members of the Harvard & Greater Boston community! Please RSVP here. Admission is $5 through Eventbrite or at the door on the night of the event. [Harvard Undergrads: this is an SEF-eligible event!]
