A University of Louisville professor who has worked to bring awareness to high suicide rates in his native India and encouraged mental health counseling is being honored there next month for exceptional contributions to society.
Sandhu is professor and former chairman of the Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology in the College of Education and Human Development.
Sandhu says in a news release from the university that it's considered taboo by many in India to see a psychologist or therapist. He says changing such attitudes can save lives.
