The foundation has the goal of establishing a hospital that will provide the opportunity to Medical students to receive residencies in a Muslim friendly environment, and not be subjected to the inherent biases that exist in many residency programs.








The foundation’s chairman Nasruddin Rupani  stated that Muslim Mental health needs has evolved faster than the available services, and require novel approaches to bridge the gap.

According to the National Institute of Health 1 in 5 adults live with a mental health illness.  This first of its kind conference seeks to eliminate the stigma associated with seeking mental health services in the Muslim Community.

bMuslim community leaders tackle mental health at first-of-its-kind conference

The often-stigmatized subject of mental health brought together Muslims from across Houston for a first-of-its-kind event Saturday.

Around 300 community leaders, including counselors, imams, and mental health and refugee service providers, met for the Muslim Mental Health Conference for Community Leaders in Sugar Land to address addiction, youth mental health and the effects of COVID-19.

Ibn Sina Foundation, a nonprofit that provides health care services to low-income Houston families, organized the conference. The foundation’s chairman, philanthropist Nasruddin Rupani, announced that it will be expanding its range of services with the construction of a building that will include mental health support.
