National Physician Suicide Awareness Day (#NPSADay)

Physicians have one of the highest suicide rates of any profession. More than half of physicians know a physician who has either considered, attempted, or died by suicide in their career.

On behalf of #FirstRespondersFirst, the Physicians Foundation, and the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes’ Foundation, we invite you to help prevent physician suicide by learning the signs, starting the conversations, understanding the underlying barriers, and sharing the resources that can help those in distress seek mental health care.
