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.”
