Health and wellbeing
Doctors' health means more than just the absence of ill-health and infirmity. It refers to the overall mental, physical and social wellbeing which enables you to practice effectively. To achieve this it is important not only to have your own GP and get regular check-ups, but also to be aware of your mental health and very real issues like stress, burnout and depression.
See the Curated Collection on Doctors' Health & Wellbeing for help and support resources accessible to you and your colleagues.
If you wish to speak to someone, The Royal Australasian College of Physicians Support Program provides a professional and confidential counselling service available to all RACP Fellows and trainees, 24 hours, seven days per week.
