My guests today were Dr Maxine Szramka and Dr Clayton Spencer - two powerhouses in their field. Todays subject was highlighting the major concerns around doctor suicide, not just the outcome but how we have come to suicide being the solution.
It is a very sobering show and one which spawns longer and deeper conversations.
We are born from love, it would not hurt to remember that and be able to see that in each other, to give us a benchmark to build self-care as a foundation of support both in our day to day and in the systems that are set up to support people, the carers, so they can in turn, support the patients.
There is a system feeding this end result and I have every trust that the system does not want the outcomes it is getting, it just needs to know the way to address it. The first step is acknowledging that the current system is not set up to support the people who have put their hands up to support humanity.
