About Us

The Safa Institute was founded in order to aid young Muslims who are in need of but are unable to access mental health services.  We were established by members of Nueces Mosque in Austin, Tx who wanted to help our struggling, Muslim brothers and sisters.

We aim to facilitate and augment the pipeline of young adult Muslims to mental health providers in Austin through researching the needs within our community, educating therapists and professionals with our findings, building services that facilitate Muslims in need of help, and funding therapy for those who need it.


The Safa Institute is under the Mercy.ngo non-profit umbrella
