ABOUT DR PERERA
Dr Mahendra Perera has been fuelled by a passion for understanding human behaviour his entire life – pondering the existential questions of life as well as the day-to-day aspects of our being which inform who we are and how we perceive our world, ourselves, and others.
With over 30 years of experience in psychiatry, including more than 20 years as a Consultant and Specialist Psychiatrist, Dr Perera is a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Psychiatrists, a Fellow of the Australasian College of Physicians Chapter of Addiction Medicine, and a Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, U.K. He is also a Board Certified Psychiatrist in Sri Lanka.
In addition to being a practicing psychiatrist and guide to students and peers, Dr Perera is also an award-winning author and editor of the book, Making Sense of Near-Death Experiences.
Published in 2012, the book received widespread praise from the NDE community as well as garnering accolades from the larger scientific community and medical establishment. Making Sense of Near-Death Experiences serves as a handbook for clinicians, first responders, and others, as well as providing a truly global perspective on the phenomenon of near-death experience from leading researchers in the field.
