Jinn possession is used as an explanation of mental symptoms among Muslims around the world. Very few studies have examined the use of jinn as a religious explanation model for mental health problems and treatment-seeking behaviour. The majority of studies show a positive association between jinn explanations and preferred treatment by religious healers, but due to methodological limitations, results should be taken with precaution. There is a need for longitudinal studies focusing on improving cultural competence and exploring possible cooperation with healers.
