Welcome to Tang, Muslim Students!

The Muslim Mental Health Initiative (MMHI) at UC Berkeley is the product of years of collaboration, discussions, and brainstorming between Muslim student leaders, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), and Khalil Center leadership.

MMHI focuses on prevention and promotion of Muslim mental health by providing services such as drop-in hours, support groups, and workshops throughout the semester. Beyond their Islamic identities, MMHI’s therapists are trained and practice just like any other therapist, with the exception that meetings are unlimited, free, and anonymous. MMHI also offers phone appointments so that our therapists are available to all students, on and off campus.

MMHI provides a platform through which UC Berkeley students can discuss how best to confront and erase the stigma of mental health in our communities on campus and in our personal lives. Throughout the academic year, we host events in collaboration with off-campus public health-oriented advocacy organizations as a way to encourage dialogue around mental health and how to practice acceptance, inclusivity, and care for ourselves and communities in a way that upholds UC Berkeley's principles of community.
