MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS FOR MEDICAL, NURSING, AND DENTAL SCHOOL STUDENTS
It’s no secret that medical school is stressful. Between demanding course work and long hours, many students don’t have the time or resources to care for their overall well-being. Long periods of stress can predispose students for mental disorders such as depression and anxiety later in life.
27% OF MEDICAL STUDENTS ARE DEPRESSED
11% OF MEDICAL STUDENTS HAVE SUIDICAL THOUGHTS
This cycle frequently continues after medical school. Sadly, every day a physician commits suicide. It is our goal to combat this trend by drawing awareness to the reality of mental illness, improving student wellness, and removing the stigma around mental health treatment. Join with us as we meet these goals by offering a scholarship for mental health awareness.
