Episode #50: Psychiatrists need mental health support, too
While doctors have long practiced under the burden of remaining stoic throughout all the hardships of an incredibly demanding job, the conversation around support in this sector is beginning to shift.
On this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, associate professor of psychiatry Greg de Moore sits down with host Jerome Doraisamy to talk about his role as a director of psychiatry training, where he offers educational and emotional assistance to junior doctors training to be psychiatrists.
Greg delves into the potential personal and professional consequences that arise in such a high-pressure role, how social stigmas around psychiatry affect trainees, and the practical strategies that can be implemented to ensure these doctors are being adequately looked after.
