Who is Six Degrees?
Six Degrees is an initiative created by Podium to respond to the growing prevalence of mental health challenges amongst Muslim youth.
Our name is a reference to the ‘six degrees of separation,’ a theory which hypothesises that everyone in the world is connected through a chain of six people.
Insha’Allah (God Willing), through chains of people, we hope to reach all Muslims in the community who may need help, and guide them to the support they require.
To instigate a paradigm shift in the Muslim community’s attitude towards mental health through community-led programmes that create a safe space for Muslims to discuss mental health.
