Depression, burnout and suicide occur at higher rates in the medical profession than in any other field. A large percent of healthcare professionals are clinically depressed and some even commit suicide. Yet, due to mental health stigma in the workplace, healthcare workers are reluctant to disclose their mental health struggles to their supervisors. They fear that disclosure may impact their job security, performance appraisals, career growth, and even loss of their license.
For the first time at Africa Health, we will bring you a one-of-a-kind platform to discuss the management of stress, burnout and anxiety within the healthcare workforce. Our speakers will deliver strategies to help healthcare organizations de-stigmatize this disease among its workforce and help create programs to assist physicians or nurses who struggle with the any one of the mental disorders. In an effort to promote dialogue, we will incorporate scientific knowledge, pragmatic and experiential knowledge of front-line healthcare workers and administrators. This is not to be missed!
