DEPRESSION FACT!

Incidence of depression is higher in medical students than the general student population at 12-24%.

Some students may not tell the medical school if they are suffering with depression because they think they will be expelled from the medical school or it will impact on their future job. These myths simply are NOT true.

Currently depression in medical students is

under recognised and therefore under treated.

  • ‘I will be thrown out of medical school’
  • ‘The medical school think I am not competent to be a doctor’
  • ‘I won’t get a job if they know’
    • -- NONE OF THESE ARE TRUE.
  • People suffering with depression may not approach anyone with their problems because they think the above is true. Currently depression in medical students is under recognised and therefore under treated.
  • Don’t suffer in silence.
