Guiding the Journey Forward: A Message from Our Executive Director

After thanking and praising Allah and sending salutations upon our Master Muhammad, I wanted to thank our stakeholders, supporters and beneficiaries for making Khalil Center what it is today. Khalil Center now celebrates its 14 years of existence. Starting from a single small office with one practitioner to now being named the largest Muslim Mental Health Clinic in North America with over 50 mental health professionals serving the American Muslim community in our clinics, community spaces and virtually. We recognize that It is a privilege to be able to provide these services to our community members when Islamic mental health services are inaccessible for many of our brothers and sisters around the world facing genocide, oppression, and overall hardship. We thank Allah for the privilege to be able to heal our surrounding communities and ask Allah to continue providing strength and resilience to those in need.

Over the past few years, Khalil Center transformed from being solely a clinic providing clinical services to emerging as an international leader shaping the delivery of mental health services for Muslim communities worldwide. With the inauguration of our School of Islamic Psychology that we intend on continuing to grow over the years, we hope to continue to play a critical role in shaping the field as a whole. Khalil Center is bringing the Prophetic tradition and rich Islamic heritage to the mental health sector, thereby breathing the soul back into psychology. It is re-humanizing mental health services through extensive research and training offered globally. Khalil Center has conducted professional training sessions on the Islamically integrated model of psychotherapy in various locations worldwide, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, Turkey, and Qatar. The influence of Khalil Center's model has been so profound that it inspired the creation of the first graduate degree in the world in Clinical Islamic Psychology, housed in Doha, Qatar.

Today, Khalil Center stands not just as an institution but as a larger movement, comprised of dedicated service providers, employees, advisors, donors, supporters, and beneficiaries. All of whom have played a crucial role in shaping the vision and mission of our organization, crafting an invaluable movement that empowers our communities to be impactful. With your continued support, we will roll out more virtual and in-person community courses and workshops, serve more patients, and train more students. Mental health conversations have evolved significantly over the past 14 years, with an unprecedented interest in mental health. It is essential that we continue to guide the direction of this movement, ensuring that spiritual health remains an essential and instrumental part of mental health treatment.

May Allah accept this work from us, give us sincerity, facilitate healing through us and serve as positive role models and examples of the Islamic tradition.

Your Servant leader,

Dr.Hooman Keshavarzi
