On the Carpet:

The Devil Made Me Do It: Mental illness and the Muslim community.


Islam and mental illness. Stigma, it seems, is a universal language.

About Big Red Carpet Nurse (1750 Articles)
Along with other stuff I enjoy that pays the bills (a plus!), I'm a budding nurse comic. I plan, like fake Opthomologist Rand Paul, to create my own professional organization solely so it will grant me a Doctorate. In my case, the org will be something like the AANC (American Association of Nurse Comics), and it will (trust me on this point) agree to make me the first ever DNC: Doctor of Nurse Comedy. I'll keep you posted!

  1. A page that is advocating support for those with mental illness and the removal of the stigma around it and suicide was visited by a Muslim Arabic woman who proceeded to say that suicide is for cowards. When advised that her words were judgemental and not welcome she to made a similar reference that if a person believed in ‘God/Allah’ then they shall be totally okay. They have no clue. Admittedly she apologised for upsetting us but people just think it’s a blanket approach. Religion fixes everything. Well it doesn’t. And never will.
