Diagnosing the Doctor

Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. Anyone can be depressed. In fact, at one point in their lives most adults will deal with an episode of depression, including physicians!

If you are a physician struggling with depression or another mental health diagnosis, talk to a colleague, help is out there!
