Physician Suicide and Depression Resources

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255 and crisis text line at 741-741

Our goal, not to lose one.” — Thomas J. Nasca, MD, MACP

Annually in September, a day is dedicated to National Physician Suicide Awareness (NPSA Day) to commemorate colleagues lost to suicide and to raise awareness about the issue by shedding light on it. Through this, we hope that we will lessen the stigma for physicians and all other clinicians to speak about their struggles either privately or openly and seek help.
