Muslim Youth Helpline (MYH)

MYH’s Vision is for every young Muslim person in the UK to find the help they need to overcome social exclusion and have better access to opportunities, that create psychological and emotional wellbeing. We make it our Mission to provide relief to young Muslims who are in need, facing hardship, and experiencing mental and emotional distress.

We do this by providing young British Muslims with non-judgemental emotional & psychological support, empowering them to overcome barriers, and facilitating their inclusion and integration into wider British society. We support young British Muslims to access the help they need by providing a free and confidential, faith- and culturally-sensitive support service (and where appropriate signposting service), and by working with others to ensure that appropriate help is available.

We do this by
• Being available 54 hours a week to provide emotional support
• Reaching out to high risk groups and communities of young distressed and disaffected people
• Working in partnership with other organisations, agencies and experts to achieve our Vision and build their capacity in meeting the needs of young British Muslims.
• Bridging the gap between young British Muslims and wider civil society
• Influencing public policy and raising awareness of the issues affecting British Muslim youth.

We are committed to the following values:
• Listening
• Confidentiality
• Empowering people to make their own decisions
• Being non-judgmental
• Compassion
• Youth led approach
