New York Times Publishes Dr. Sandhya's Letter on India's Mental Health Crisis
01.25.15

The New York Times editorial section published a letter to the editor by Shaifali Sandhya, Ph.D., which responded to the op-ed India's Mental Health Crisis.

In her letter, Sandhya points out that the crisis is not caused simply by a lack of mental health professionals but by a systemic deficit of resources. She calls for a committment from India's government to dedicate the necessary funding that can improve the lives of people who suffer from mental illness as well as their families.

Dr. Shaifali Sandhya is a professor and clinical psychologist with expertise in health and wellness.
