About Sohom Das

Dr Sohom Das is a consultant forensic psychiatrist based in London. He is also the host of a YouTube channel called A Psych for Sore Minds, which covers topics related to true crime, mental illness and the crossover between the two.

In his professional role, he regularly assesses mentally disordered offenders — in prison, in court, and in locked, secure forensic psychiatric units. His subjects typically assault, rob, stab, set fires and rape. Some kill. They suffer a range of mental illnesses from schizophrenia, to bipolar affective disorder to anti-social personality disorder. Their crimes are often driven by paranoia, delusions of grandeur and hearing voices.

Dr Das has made miscellaneous media appearances; from television to radio, and works as an expert witness for numerous criminal courts in London. He is currently writing his debut book about his most fascinating cases, due to be published in Spring 2022.
