The 9th session of Bhutan Dialogue was held on the conversation between our host, Dr Karma Phuntsho, the Founder and President of Loden Foundation and our speaker, Dr Chencho Dorji, Bhutan’s first modern psychiatrist.
Dr Chencho is the Bhutan’s first modern psychiatrist and first prison medical officer. He has devoted all of his time and effort in developing the Bhutanese Mental Health Services with main focus on community based mental health care. Among his many interests, he is an ardent follower of the Gross National Happiness philosophy of development. He is also keen on integrating Buddhist Principles in psychotherapy.
