The Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association, Bradford West chapter is holding an Interfaith Symposium on Religion and Mental Health.
The free event will take place Saturday, March 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Bradford West Gwillimbury Public Library, located at 425 Holland Street West.
It's organized to inform youth how the religion provides solution to mental health and anxiety.
According to The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), 1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental health problem or illness in any given year. The remaining four Canadians will interact with a suffering family member, friend, or colleague.
"Religion provides inner peace; religious teachings help polish morals and bring solace and fortitude in life," states the Ahmadiyya Muslim Elders Association.
Scholars from different faiths have been invited to share how the teachings and practices may help address the subject.
