[Hey, gang! We're re-releasing this super good episode because when it first posted the file was screwed up. Enjoy!] Physicians are no better than the rest of us at dealing with mental illness, even as they struggle to get their own patients to recognize and have treated their own disabilities. As society becomes more open about 'mood disorders,' it is still common for MDs to reject treatment for depression, substance abuse disorders, anxiety, and more...and physicians and medical students are literally killing themselves. Our co-hosts this week, Zeynep Demir, Innie Kim, Jason Lewis, and Kaci McCleary all have e xperienced their own disorders, and have formed a CCOM chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Still in it's infancy, they hope to destigmatize mental illness among physicians, residents, and medical students in the hope that those who suffer can be saved and become what they always wanted to be: effective, compassionate, and healthy physicians. We want to hear from you! Do you suffer from a mental illness, and worry about your future as a physician? We'd love to hear your story, anonymously if that's what you'd prefer.
