Struggling in Silence: Physician depression and suicide

This is a great documentary we showed medical students in Israel awhile back.

Here's the link:

The following 5 cases are presented in the film:

1) suicide of a renown burn surgeon
2) medical student suffering from depression & anxiety who was on the brink of dropping out of medical school
3) plastic surgeon suffering from major depression
4) neurologist suffering from bipolar disorder
5) suicide of another physician
