2020 has been an extraordinarily challenging year for everyone. Yet, despite the difficulties, we at AMHP are optimistic and hopeful. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been at the forefront of addressing the acute public health needs emanating from this crisis. Here is a short summary of some of our work:
- AMHP co-founded the National Muslim COVID-19 Task Force, which has been active in developing initatives to support individuals, families and communities throughout the nation.
- AMHP is focusing on the secondary impacts of the pandemic such as mental health awareness and support. The virtual Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Certification Training equips communities with tools and resources to not only survive but also thrive given the “new normal.” We have certified over 700 individuals in MHFA so they can better respond to mental health issues in their homes, schools and communities.
- AMHP’s Policy & Advocacy Program provides a voice to the marginalized, advocates on behalf of minority communities and builds capacity and resources for Muslim Free Clinics that serve uninsured patients of all backgrounds.
We hope you will continue to support AMHP’s mission to improve the health and well-being of all Americans as you’ve generously done so in prior years.
