Guest: Connie Guille, MD, Psychiatrist and Faculty Member at the Medical University of South Carolina The people we rely on to save our lives are one to two times more likely to end their own. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention says 300 to 400 physicians die by suicide each year. A web-based therapy program proved effective in reducing the risk of suicide among medical interns and residents studied by psychiatrists at the University of Michigan and the Medical University of South Carolina. Among other things, they found that 30-minutes of web-training on how to identify and copy with negative thoughts and feelings was enough to cut the rate of suicidal thoughts in half for these young doctors.
