Lecture delivered by Dr Diana Setiyawati, Centre for Public Mental Health, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia
As a common mental disorder, depression needs to be handled comprehensively. Multiple perspectives and understandings need to be promoted to increase the effectiveness of prevention and treatment for depression. Islam as a religion and a way of life for Muslims has its own concept of depression.
A systematic literature review has been done to understand:
Literature included in this review were Quran, Hadist, peer-reviewed and grey literature examining depression from the Islamic perspective, and also religious lecture videos. All publications included are in English or Indonesian language. During the presentation, Dr Setiyawati will discuss the findings from this systematic literature review and its implications. She also will explain the practice in Indonesia through examples and illustrations.
