The video from Mayo Clinic and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention demonstrates how pressures within medical environments can be high-stakes, overwhelming, and exhausting. It is said that physicians often deny their self-care in the service of their patients. Moreover, research indicates that medical students and residents have significantly higher rates of depression and burnout than other adults.
Placing emphasis on creating a culture of wellness and establishing strong connections with peers, the video stresses the importance of mental health awareness and how to watch for key signs of depression.
