Medicine’s Dirty Secret | Doctors and Mental Health

Doctors have some of the highest rates of depression and suicide out of any profession, and yet, they are less likely to seek mental health treatment than the general population. Why is there such a stigma surrounding mental health among physicians? And what can we do to change it?

Mental health stigma among physicians is an issue that impacts all of us. We need to take a good hard look at the issue of mental health among physicians and start making strides to break down these barriers to seeking treatment. Only then will we be able to make meaningful progress towards happier and healthier physicians.
