The Journal of Muslim Mental Health is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed academic journal and publishes articles exploring social, cultural, medical, theological, historical, and psychological factors affecting the mental health of Muslims in the United States and globally. The journal publishes research and clinical material, including research articles, reviews, and reflections on clinical practice.
The Journal of Muslim Mental Health is a much-needed resource for professionals seeking to identify and explore the mental health care needs of Muslims in all areas of the world. In order to conduct sound clinical assessments, form accurate diagnostic opinions, develop effective interventions, and formulate successful health policy for diverse communities, the special historical, societal, and cultural contexts of those communities must be well understood.
A void in the Muslim mental health literature has become increasingly glaring, and a number of important questions exist:
Publishing two issues per year, Journal of Muslim Mental Health makes relevant research data, typically overlooked by more general mental health journals, readily available within and beyond the academic community. In addition to important theoretical contributions, the journal presents service-oriented work that will allow institutions and public service systems to deliver more effective mental health care to their Muslim communities.
The journal also provides a forum for the advancement of epidemiological studies of mental illness in Muslim countries, culturally valid psychometric scales, religiously sensitive psychotherapy techniques, innovative models for service delivery, and outcome research on mental health prevention and intervention programs.
Volumes 1 through 5 were published in print and online by Taylor & Francis. Volume 6 is published by Michigan Publishing and is freely available to read; subscription is not required.
