What drives doctors to suicide

Hosted by  • 

Physicians experience burnout, depression, and suicidal thoughts at higher rates than the general population. That’s according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We speak with a U.S. family physician who’s spoken to thousands of suicidal doctors, and a British psychologist who’s out with the new book, “Also Human: The Inner Lives of Doctors.”
