Physician Suicide (Part 2): How do we improve the statistics?

Like I mentioned in Part 1 of my Blog Series on Physician Suicide, it appears that society forgets that physicians are human too!

Physician Suicide (Part 1): How do we improve the statistics?

Life Coaching for the Doctors’ Spouses

Putting yourself last contributes to Physician Burnout!

My physician clients are really good at helping their patients, being great leaders, putting their work schedule before their family and their own needs.  But what they find so often happens is that at some point they feel the burden (physically and emotionally) of always putting themselves last on their “to do” list.
