Title: Singaporean Muslims and mental health : impiousness or just stress?
Authors: Dhiya Batrisyia Jailani

Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: Mental health has been viewed as a taboo topic to talk about. This lack of discussion has led to the lack of understanding about it. The current research aims to eradicate this label to make it safe for those with mental illness to openly discuss what they are going through without the fear of being stigmatised by their own community. Thus, the paper has gathered insights from 137 Singaporean Muslims to explore their views on mental health – whether Muslims today still view mental health to be related to being impious. Religion-health connection theory and moral community theory were used to analyse the key findings, which do show that religion and mental health are still viewed to be associated to each other. However, there has been a rise in awareness about the topic.Many believe that there is more to poor mental health conditions other than the lack of religion commitment.
