Religious consultations fall under services designed to offer religious awareness, education and religious rulings (fatwas) regarding individuals or families with mental health concerns. At times, people with mental health concerns have particular religious dispensations, rights, or privileges that are consequential to their mental health.
Mental health considerations are inherently built into the Islamic tradition, as mental status considerations can impact a variety of areas of Muslim life, including: faith and belief, ritual worship, marital life, social dealings, business contracts, inheritance, and more.
How does religious consultation work?
Appointment with a religious consultant is scheduled.
Preliminary interview to gather all pertinent information is conducted.
Mental status interview may be additionally scheduled with one of Khalil Center’s expert clinicians.
Follow-up session is arranged with the client informing them about their case-specific religious considerations, obligations, responsibilities, accommodations, etc.
Ongoing psychological care may also be arranged for the client in light of the religious consultation.
