Naseeha, which literally means “Advice”, is a confidential youth advice network for young Muslims in Canada and the USA. And, as the Muslim Community continues to grow in North America, so do the problems amongst the youth. And at times, they don’t know who to turn to for help.

NEED IN THE COMMUNITY
As the Muslim community continues to grow in the United States and Canada, more and more youth are looking for an outlet to turn to for their day to day questions and concerns. Youth often need to talk through their confusions in the clash between the religious, cultural and Western environments. Naseeha aims to serve this need by helping caller navigate through their difficult circumstances and allowing them to make sense of their environment.
CONFIDENTIAL, ANONYMOUS and TOLL-FREE
1-866-NASEEHA is a toll-free number for Muslim youth across North America. The service is completely anonymous and confidential to ensure that our callers are able to discuss their matters in a private and comfortable setting.
HOW WE HELP
Our trained counsellors provide an empathetic and non-judgmental phone environment for callers to discuss their concerns, confusions and issues. Using proven counselling techniques within an Islamic framework, they help callers navigate through their difficult situations. Our counsellors do not give advice, but rather empower the caller by mutually generating and selecting alternatives through which problems could be solved.
Our counsellors are a dedicated group of young adults from various cultural and academic backgrounds who are trained in the essentials of phone counselling. They have received training from Naseeha’s internal training and development program which was designed by affiliate mainstream counselling organizations, psychologists, psychiatrists, lawyers, social workers, doctors and various Muslim community leaders.
