About Ashwin Varghese MD: “I developed an interest in mental health early in my academic career. Prior to attending medical school, I was a researcher in the field of Psycho-Neuro-Immunology where I explored the relationship between early life psychological trauma and the development of immunological disorders as well as psychopathology in later life (using animal models). Subsequently, I attended medical school and it seemed natural for me to train in Psychiatry after medical school. As early as graduate school (prior to attending medical school) I developed a personal practice of meditation to cope with the stresses of a demanding academic career. Currently my contemplative practices included classical yoga as well as its sister science, Ayurveda. I have a professional interest in Mindfulness. Within the past one year, we have published a study examining Mindfulness and Self-Compassion in people diagnosed with a psychotic disorder and a second study exploring mindfulness as a strategy to enhance resilience in mental health care professionals including Psychiatrists. Currently, I live and work in Melbourne, Australia.”
