Our Values & Vision
This was a problem before COVID, was exacerbated by the pandemic, and will continue for the foreseeable future.
We want to provide safe spaces in protected time for medical professionals, where they can come together to talk about the emotional impact of their work.
We call on the government to understand the importance of prevention.
There is so much more to be done in our quest to reduce burnt out and stress.
We must tackle the alarmingly high rates of suicide in the medical profession.
“We support the mental wellbeing of the medical workforce through facilitated talking and listening spaces.”
Why act now?
In light of COVID-19 it is imperative that we work to improve mental health support for doctors and other healthcare workers and stop needless loss of life through suicide.
In England, every week, two health professionals die through suicide and one doctor every three weeks.
