Life After The Letters: Doctors Have Anxiety Too (S1E5)


I thought this podcast was a great one to discuss on World Mental Health Day.
After the Letters raise the really important issue of doctors’ wellbeing. This is a topic which is often neglected but these girls discuss it so openly, which is great.
They bring in a friend who has suffered performance anxiety and talk about their own struggle with low mood.
What resonated with me, and I have seen myself, is how the system talks about ‘resilience’ and puts the onus on the individual.
I am so pleased these girls had the courage to talk about their own personal experiences.
