Did you know that 12-month prevalence of anxiety disorders within adults in the U.S. is 18.1%?

Or that the 12-month prevalence of mood disorders is 9.5%?

While these numbers may be surprising, it may be more unsettling to learn that physicians have higher rates of suicide than the general population. In fact, some estimates attribute as many as 400 physician deaths to suicide each year. Though the statistics may seem overwhelming, there are resources that can alleviate stress and prevent more serious symptoms from developing.

Join the Psychiatry Club and Student Counseling Center to learn more about mental health topics affecting those in the health sciences, including information on ways of helping others, how to seek support,and strategies for maintaining well-being. Food provided for the first 50 attendees.
