What I say to suicidal physicians

Suicidal Physicians

This week a resident asked, “What do you say to suicidal physicians?” Great question! For an expanded version of the three things I say to suicidal physicians (applies to anyone who is suicidal), please listen to my podcast here and download MP3 for future reference. There are three simple things I say to a suicidal physician (these strategies apply to anyone who is suicidal). 1) I don’t say anything. I listen without judgement. 2) Then I say, “You are not alone.” 3) Finally, I say, “Call me anytime.” For additional details see her article “What I say to suicidal physicians” and her book, Physician Suicide Letters—Answered.
