More than half of physicians report burnout, and suicide among physicians is double of what it is in the general population.
However, struggling physicians often do not seek help.
We are the only anonymous and confidential peer-support platform aimed to reduce physician distress, burnout, and suicide.
I recently decided I was going to leave my role as an Emergency Medicine (ER) doctor in the UK National Health Service (NHS). As service after service reaches its full capacity and beyond, the people who rely on these services do not know where to go for the help they need. All of these factors led me do decide that I no longer wanted to commit my daily energies to a system that was causing me to burn out.
