What Is the Muslim Chaplaincy?

 
Muslim Chaplaincy at the University of Windsor is a counselling and educational service providing faith-based support to members of the campus community. The Muslim Chaplaincy provides accessible counselling services that complement existing mental health services at the university, while also working to promote collaborative educational and interfaith initiatives that further dialogue and understanding about faith and mental wellness.
 
The Muslim Chaplaincy serves as a resource to offer support in times of personal loss or crisis, answer faith-related questions, and help navigate spiritual, social, and emotional challenges.
