    Even in the land of sandy shores and swaying palm trees, anxiety and depression remain on the rise.

Dr. Dennis Itoga, clinical psychologist and Adjunct Professor at Chaminade University in Honolulu, discusses the increased need for mental health professionals to serve students and the challenges of attracting more people to this work. But as Dr. Itoga explains, there are also reasons to be hopeful.
