National Physician Suicide Awareness Day - September 17

Every day make time to talk – and to act – so physicians' struggles don't become mental health emergencies.

Suicide remains a threat to America's physician workforce, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has abated. This is driven by a complex matrix of organizational workplace dysfunction, stigma around seeking mental healthcare, common temperments, a shrinking workforce, and seemingly never enough time just to be human. During national suicide awareness month in September, consider how you might deploy the free resources available through your sphere of influence.
