At TeamHealth, we encourage physicians, advanced practice clinicians and all those who support the practice of medicine to make their mental health and well-being a priority.
September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and TeamHealth is actively working to combat the high rate of suicide and increasing rate of burnout among healthcare professionals. We are committed to offering resources to prevent suicide and shed light on this often stigmatized topic, and we are proud to join the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in promoting Suicide Prevention Month.
During September, follow along as we share stories from our own clinicians and associates and offer resources using the #SuicidePrevention hashtag. You can join us to create awareness for Suicide Prevention Month by sharing photos and stories on social media also using the same #SuicidePrevention hashtag. Together, we can overcome this stigma.
Join us to create awareness for World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10 by:
- Taking photos of yourself wearing purple, teal or gray
- Sharing those photos on social media using #SuicidePrevention
We understand there are situations and circumstances that are difficult to face alone. If you are feeling worn down or burnt out, you can get help.
Call 1.800.273.8255. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources and best practices for professionals.
