Dr. Ethel Hayes is pursuing a very important cause to create awareness about mental health and destigmatize its struggle.

Considering that suicide is the 6th leading cause of death in the world and the second among college students, that brings to light how the battle with oneself should never be taken for granted.

As a sufferer of the consequences of suicide, Dr. Hayes has put himself at the forefront of this battle against the stigmatization of mental health because the stigma worsens the situation of the struggler and further pushes them towards suicide.

Whether through this scholarship or outside of it and in our everyday lives, we all should join in this battle against mental health and its stigmatization.
