Suicide rates in India are among the highest in the world and College of Education
and Human Development Professor Daya
Sandhu is doing his part to stop the pain.
Sandhu, a professor and former chair
of the Department of Educational and
Counseling Psychology, has worked to
create India's frst nationwide organization
for mental health counselors. The group's
primary goals are public education and
helping college administrators establish
campus-based mental health centers.

attitudes — it's the best way to save lives."
