Dr. Sheba Singh:(Consultant /Psychologist) Multi-disciplinary experience, across academia, government and extensive practice in psychological consulting. Having born to academicians, was passionate about academic pursuits and so formative years (after Ph.D.) were spent in teaching at a slew of colleges and universities, coaching and deliberating case-studies with young psychology learners helped in validating theories and mentoring them.
Down the line became interested in studying relevance and application of theory so joined Punjab State AIDS Control Society, Chandigarh to impart and study the impact of public policy. Led focused healthcare campaigns in creating social awareness of AIDS amongst at-risk population. Engaging on-ground with voluntary networks and patients helped in empathizing and understanding perspectives, diverse to teaching.
Since then, whilst practicing as a mental health consultant, I have also been mentoring young students to intern with me. I regularly conduct talk-shows for corporate-clients on creating more awareness about mental health issues amongst co-workers, and encouraging delegates to reach-out to specialists in case of need. Purpose is to actively contribute in removing stigma tagged to mental health in India by encouraging seekers to rise to seek solutions to their psychological issues than fighting them in solitude and agony.
