Doctors in Distress is working to provide mental health support for all medical professionals across the UK through confidential, facilitated support groups.
Our groups provide spaces for healthcare workers to come together to talk about the emotional impact of their work, to share together and to prevent the worsening of mental health in the profession before burnout.
Alongside our support groups, here at Doctors in Distress we are committed to influencing culture change within the NHS. We know that there is a very prevalent stigma around mental health which stops many healthcare workers from sharing their concerns. To create culture change, we are running webinars for medical students and those in leadership. We believe that these two groups are essential in ensuring that healthcare workers feel able to access help when they need it.
