MDX Psychology Series: Depression and Islam

As one of the common mental disorders, depression needs to be handled comprehensively. Multi perspectives understandings need to be promoted to increase the effectiveness of preventions, and treatment for depression. Islam as a religion and a way of life for Muslims has its own concept of depressions.

A systematic literature review has been done to understand:

  • What is the existing concept of depression in Islam?
  • What are the methods of prevention for depression in Islam?
  • What are Islamic treatments for depression?

Literature included in this review were Quran, Hadist, peer-reviewed and grey literature examining depression from the Islamic perspective, and also religious lecture videos. All publications included are in English or Indonesian language. During the presentation, Dr. Diana Setiyawati of Centre for Public Mental Health’s Faculty of Psychology, will discuss the finding from the systematic literature review and its implications. She also will explain the practice in Indonesia for examples and illustrations.
