The Doctors' Support Network

< Back to directory

Overview

As doctors they are used to supporting patients’ health and well being, but they often neglect their own. Doctors have among the highest rate of mental health problems of any profession, but often feel isolated and unsupported.

The Doctors’ Support Network aims to provide support, reduce stigma, and campaign for better services for doctors with a range of mental health problems.  The Doctors’ Support Network (DSN) is a fully confidential, friendly self-help group for doctors with mental health concerns.  These concerns include stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, psychoses and eating disorders. The group believes that contact with and support from other doctors can help recovery.

DSN believes that contact with and support from other medics can help recovery.  All DSN members have either themselves been troubled at some stage in their lives or support the aims of the organisation.

DSN is currently the only independent body representing doctors with non substance use related, mental health conditions in the UK.  ​
