Mental Health, Religion and Culture is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed academic journal published by Routledge. It publishes original articles that deal with mental health in relation to religion and spirituality of all kinds. The journal was established in 1998 and is abstracted and indexed by Scopus, Caredata, CINAHL, CommunityWISE, Family Studies Database, PsycINFO, Theology Digest, Sociological Abstracts, Social Care Institute for Excellence, and Religious and Theological Abstracts.[1] Mental Health, Religion and Culture are very controversial when brought together. In some rural parts of the world, where some people lack education, we see that they think mental health issues are linked to religion. People from places such the Borana semi-nomadic population in southern Ethiopia feel as though supernatural and religious factors severally impact ones mental health whereas in the first world country, people focus on more on psychological and biological factors.== References ==
