Description: 10th Annual Muslim Mental Health Conference By MSU Department of Psychiatry March 15-17, 2018 Washington, DC United States Institute of Peace THEME: Out of the Shackles: Pursuit of Civil Justice in the Face of Psychological Trauma The number of hate crimes, bullying, and microaggressions American Muslims experience is drawing increasing attention. Scholarly research on the subject began long before the recent political rhetoric and even before 9/11. However, the mechanisms, scale, and impact of the treatment of American Muslims requires more rigorous study and better dissemination. Furthermore, the American Muslim experience is subject to American social and structural realities. The role of race, violence, policing, surveillance, educational policy, mental health care access and reform, immigration policy, and civil liberties in the U.S. all impact the American Muslim experience. Interventions, whether at a clinical, programmatic, or policy level have not been well described. This conference seeks scholars who will offer an analysis as well as intervention for American Muslims’ challenges.
