Interests

Other than English, I speak Punjabi, Urdu and Farsi fluently and have had a major interest in the beliefs towards mental health issues amongst the Muslims. I have been invited speaker in this regard to the teaching programme for the Muslim chaplains for the health service and prisons and have delivered training to the NHS staff in cultural sensitivity. I have also been on the panels of various TV shows and community groups to discuss mental health issues that impact Muslim communities.

I collaborated in research projects on psychiatric rating scales and suicidal behaviour as part of my academic work at the Aga Khan University, Pakistan in 1990s. A number of publications reported these projects in peer reviewed journals.
