Studies have shown that the prevalence of psychological distress amongst medical trainees is higher than in the general population. Programs need to be well equipped in managing mental health distress in trainees.
Through case presentations, we will highlight the importance of recognizing the signs of distress, the utilization of processes/protocols to navigate mental health crises in trainees, and having supportive mental health resources available.
1. Recognize the signs of psychological distress in medical trainees
2. Understand how to manage a mental health crisis of a trainee through review of protocol and helpful tips.
3. Identify mental health supports and resources for trainees.
