The importance of mental health is discussed everywhere today, from workplaces and schools to television shows and social media. In most cases, however, it has a distinctly secular approach. There is rarely any mention of the role that faith and spirituality can play in mental well-being.

In this season finale, host Mohamad Zaoud talks to Dr. Osman Umarji and Dr. Farah Islam, co-authors of “Faith in Mind: Islam’s Role in Mental Health.” Read the study here: https://yqn.io/mqg
