There has been an epidemic of mental illness within the COVID 19 pandemic. Rates of depression, anxiety and burnout have sky rocketed and we physicians are not immune to the adverse mental health effects of the work we do. In fact we are in the perfect storm – arduous, demanding work during which we often bear witness to countless tragedies that leave us prone to mental stress. Yet due to the culture of medicine, we often suffer in silence, not seeking help, too afraid of a mental illness stigma or of losing the ability to practice medicine if we seek help. In this episode we sit down to talk to J. Corey Feist, J.D., MDA, Cofounder of the Dr. Lorna Breen Heroes Foundation about the tragic suicide of his sister-in-law Dr. Lorna Breen in 2020 at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic.
