    Story

    How it started

    I first heard Dr Richard Duggins, psychiatrist and medical psychotherapist, talk about doctor stress on a training day. He shared his 15 years of experience treating doctors with stress, burnout, anxiety and depression; one message was that doctors tend to leave it late before seeking help. He was keen to reach more doctors. As a GP photographer, Dr Morris Gallagher, I wanted people to see and react to my photographs about how doctors respond to stress. We joined forces to produce this zine/booklet, which is aimed at helping stressed and burnt-out doctors.

    What will our zine/booklet look like?

    It will be a 34-page image-text zine/booklet with an introduction about the size of doctor stress, photographs about personal responses to stress, advice on recognising stress in yourself and others and what to do about it, and a directory of helping services.

    What do we need to raise and why?

    The money will pay for the design of the print and e-books, a support website and other things. The authors will make no profit from this book. Any profit from this crowdfund and the sale of this booklet will go to the charity 'Doctors in Distress.'

      Update from the Page owner

      Thanks to all our contributors. This money will pay half the costs of the booklet designer. We will ensure that everyone who contributes gets a free copy of the booklet or download. These will be available in February after the booklet and download are launced. This will raise money for Doctors in Distress.
