I am a psychiatrist with a special interest in what these days is often called happiness or positive mental health. There are several sources of suffering in this world, such as death, illness, poverty and conflicts between people. We will never avoid all of them but we know for sure that it is possible to help people resolve conflicts. It is not an easy task. New and fresh ideas, thinking outside the box, are called for because all the conventional methods have been tried time and again. "Bridges for Hope and Peace" is such a project, a promising initiative worth supporting.
