Biography

Shame and the stigma about seeking help for mental problems may be one reason that elderly Asian women have the highest incidence of suicide in the nation among women over 65. Stanley Sue, professor of psychology and Asian-American studies, says Asian Americans overall tend not to use mental health services. To change that, Sue says what is needed are bilingual/bicultural therapists and service providers as well as better community education. He is former director and current principal investigator for the National Research Center on Asian American Mental Health at UC Davis -- one of only four minority mental-health centers nationwide.
