Demystifying Mental Health Care

Join Khalil Center and American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP) in a discussion about the
“unknowns” related to mental health care, which are often overwhelming and discouraging. Seeking
care can be challenging for many Muslims, and is often avoided due to fears and also unfamiliarity
regarding the process and experience of evaluation and treatment. This session will help increase
the understanding of the role of psychological and psychiatric care, and address common misconceptions,
as well as discuss the Islamic perspective on mental health wellness.

Panelists: Yasmeen Fareeduddin, DO, MPH, Fahad Khan, PsyD, MA,
MS, Dr. Sarah N. Syed, PsyD, MA

Saturday, 3:30 – 4:30 PM
Room: 32
