Prof. Nevzat Tarhan was born in Merzifon in 1952. He graduated from  Kuleli Military High School (1969) and İstanbul University Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty (1975). After the GATA internship as well as Cyprus and Bursa continental service, he became a Psychiatrist in GATA in 1982. He became assistant professor (1988) and associate professor (1990) in GATA Haydarpaşa after serving as a doctor in Erzincan and Çorlu Hospitals. He served as a clinical director. He became Colonel (1993) and Professor (1996). He was an academic member at Yüzüncü Yıl University and an expert at the Forensic Medicine Institute between the years of 1996-1999. He retired at his own will. In 1998, he was the representative of Turkey in Memory Center of America.

Prof. Nevzat Tarhan is a scientist who has carried the results to his personal and social life. He transferred his knowledge of psychiatric expertise, which he has pursued over the years with a great effort and researches, to over 150 research articles published in national and international refereed journals, more than 40 of which were in SCI class journals, and 29 books. Because of his works presented in visual and written media, he has reached a large amount of audience in Turkey.

He carries out his work with great seriousness and precision. The main factor underlying his diligence and success is his philosophy of life and his supramind (metacognitive, spiritual) perspective. His view of life, which is not limited to the world and covers both the world and after death, stems from the awareness that he is in the presence of his Creator while performing every work. This means that his beliefs based on research, observation, and proof are presented to the readers by taking science in the testimony of the Universe and by establishing the connection with the characteristics of Allah reflected in the Universe. He is one of the rare scientists who succeeded in explaining Religion and Science in a supportive way. In addition to succeeding in reducing the identity of the scientist to his life, he undertakes the duty of carrying, transferring the truths he learned to others.

The source of the foundations of this different perspective is the Quran, which has guided his life since his youth. Like young people who question the meaning and existence of life, he has questioned in his university years, “Incidental existence, The meaning of life, Darwinism, Why there are evil, The need for religion, The psychology of believing, Is there life after death, How does one satisfy the mind and soul?”, and shared them with his readers by proving explanations from the Qur'an and proving them with scientific research.

As Tarhan closely observes the social life due to being a psychiatrist, he makes an accurate analysis of the social life and touches on the importance of "Community Psychology" in every media platform.

Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan, whose characteristics are not limited to what is written above, has always targeted investment in people and used his material-spiritual resources towards this direction. He donated his achievements to the İDER foundation and founded Üsküdar University, and increased the student population to the level of 20,000 in an 8-year period.

Currently, he is the Founder and President of the Üsküdar University and carries out the NPİSTANBUL Brain Hospital Chairman of the Board of Directors, which is Turkey's first neuropsychiatry hospital.

His books have sold over 1 million copies. Prof Tarhan has 135 research papers more than 50 of which are indexed in WoS journals. WOS Google Scholar data showed his academic performance according to May 2020 Citation: 1478 | h-index: 20 | i10-index: 37. He speaks English and German. He is the father of two children. The family tree, dating back to 1400 years, was published in 2017 as a book.

Merhabalar Nevzat Bey, Ben Şubat ayı boyunca NP Beyin hastanesinde misafiriniz olmuştum. Kendimi bildim bileli, hatırladığım en erken hatıralarımda bile yer eden OKB canavarı ile savaşmaktaydım. Şu an 23 yaşındayım ve yaklaşık 17 senedir sayısız psikolog ve psikiyatrist gördüm. Çeşitli ilaçlar kullandım, terapiler gördüm. Fakat maalesef geçtiğimiz aya kadar bir ilerleme kaydedemedim. Sizin de bildiğiniz üzere çok zor bir hastalıktır OKB; insanı mantıksız bulmasına rağmen belirli davranışlara, korkunç düşüncelere ve hislere hapseder. İnsan hayatının en önemli değişkeni zamanını çalar. Benim de 23 senedir yokuş aşağı giden bu hastalıkla savaşım vardı. Kendimle açıkçası bu uzun ve zor yoldaki direncim konusunda gurur duyuyorum ancak insan bir yerden sonra "Bu hep böyle mi gidecek?" ümitsizliğine kapılıyor ve ben de bu noktada hastaneye yatış kararını aldım. Gördüğüm sayısız psikiyatri yollarından sizinkini seçmemdeki en büyük neden hastalığımın ciddiyetini ve bilimselliğini ne kadar net gördüğünüzü ve bu vizyonunuzu sezmiş oluşumdu. Hastanede tam 25 gün kaldım. OKB ile geçirdiğim 23 yılı düşününce bu 25 gün belki de hiçbir şey. Maddi durumumuz yeterince olmamasına rağmen ailemin sonsuz desteği, motivasyonum, değerli doktorlarım ve sizin vizyonunuz sayesinde bu hastalığı yenme yolunda bu kısacık 25 günde sonsuz yol katettim. Gündelik zamanımın yarısından fazlasını çalan, beni ailemden uzaklaştırmak zorunda bırakan ve kendime küstüren bu hastalığı tedavi ettiğiniz için size bu teşekkürü borç biliyorum. 2 gün önce Oxford Üniversitesi'nden Sosyal Veri Bilimi dalında yüksek lisans kabulümü aldım. Bu başarı hepimizin başarısı. Kendime artık "Bu hep böyle mi gidecek?" diye sorduğumda suratımı bir gülümseme kaplıyor. Değerli doktorlarıma ve size sonsuz teşekkür ederim, Çok ciddi bir kalp ameliyatından çıkıp cerraha sarılan "Hayatımı kurtardınız!" diyen hasta kadar minnettarım size.

Let Us Call You
