Physicians experience burnout, depression and suicidal thoughts at higher rates than the general population, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. We speak with a family doctor in Oregon who’s spoken to thousands of suicidal doctors, and for the past six years, she’s kept a registry of doctors who’ve died by suicide. We also hear from a British psychologist who’s out with the new book, “Also Human: The Inner Lives of Doctors.”
