What is THE DELICATE MIND
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark
Any ideas of what is manly or masculine are purely socially constructed and not based on any inherent nature of man.
We know what we are, but know not what we may be.
The Delicate Mind
What we do…
The Delicate Mind is an award winning community interest company, we explore mental health in the 21st century through a variety of formats
The Delicate Mind began as a small idea in the bedroom of Nikhwat Marawat after losing his brother to suicide in 2017 “I felt a lot of pain when it happened, I still do. It felt like someone had torn my heart from my chest back then and I didn’t know what to do at the time expect for just doing something”
The Idea for what The Delicate Mind has become was pitched Farrukh Abeed on a very normal seeming day and from that moment there TDM was born.
The Faith & Belief forum connected the other two to Nadia Khan who was a natural fit and since their inception on March 23rd 2018 TDM has gone from strength to strength and went on to deliver mental health and mental strength workshops locally, regionally and internationally, given a variety of lectures and talks, delivered real term practical support, developed research and is creating in house key community mental health services.
We have a particular but not exclusive focus on the Muslim community with our work continually expanding in to places such as prisons, youth clubs, corporates, grammar schools, educational institutions, faith institutions and other third sector organisations
Our mission focus is to help to create a more educated, inclusive and fairer society and to empower the communities we wish to serve.

As someone who lives with mental health issues and has been impacted personally by them I feel it is necessary to be proactive rather than reactive as the WHO has stated that by 2030 that depression will be the leading public health crisis. We have to take the steps now.
On my continuing journey with TDM I truly feel that this is one of the reasons that I have been put on to this earth for which I am grateful and I will endeavour to use this platform to serve.
I wish through The Delicate Mind I can help break the stigma around mental health so people can find the steps they need for a better mental health and help those that need support and guidance
