When a popular local physician committed suicide some years ago, it sent shock waves through our professional community.
It also did something more. It opened our eyes to the fact that even well trained medical professionals like ourselves face daily pressures at home and on the job that can push some to the breaking point. The tragic loss of such a well-respected practitioner came with little or no warning, and that fact alone should compel some level of self-examination. It also is one of the driving points behind the creation of Clinician’s Call, a website where our community of dedicated professionals can go to read and discuss the critical issues we confront every day.
Frankly, it’s about time. In speaking with colleagues around the country, it seems clear that for most of us our practice presents awesome new challenges seldom faced by our predecessors.
Jobs, finances, relationships – our clients are under enormous stress in virtually every aspect of their lives. And this places an ever-increasing burden on us as healers. At the end of a pressure-packed day, where can we go to find the help and support we need?
