Episode 16: Mental Health: Caring for the Medical Community

Mental health issues–burnout, depression, anxiety, and suicide–are multiplying in the medical community. And the stresses of COVID have only exacerbated what was already a worrisome trend. 

In this episode, Dr. Kellie Stecher, Co-Founder & President of Patient Care Heroes, shares what she has been doing to bring much-needed mental health resources and care to the heroes who care for us. 

What we talked about: 

  • The effects of the pandemic on her OB/GYN practice
  • Supporting the mental health of the medical community
  • Advocating for gender equity issues and a safe reporting structure for harassment and bullying 

Heroes of Healthcare is hosted by Ted Weyn.
