Focus on Depression
Saturday 23rd Feb saw a very insightful talk into depression delivered by Dr Waqaus Waheed. There were also a great deal of questions on the topic and this has inspired Cheadle Mosque and Islamic Relief to do more work around this important illness – an illness that is affecting millions of people around the world.
As part of our work – we have created and wish to share our “#Dontsufferinsilence Support Cards” – they give five points that we can focus on when our mood dips and the reverse of the card shares five tips to those who wish to help friends or family who may be depressed.
If there is one thing we wish people to take away from this campaign – is please talk to each other about how you feel – don’t suffer in silence.
