Medical practitioners are often reluctant to acknowledge and seek timely help for their own mental health problems. If things are to improve, both medical professionals and policy makers alike need to “wake up.” In this article, we first look at why doctors (including medical students) are susceptible to mental health problems and why they are reluctant help seekers, and then discuss how an occupational mental health service for doctors can work in hospital settings. We focus on the need for occupational mental health services in medical settings in India and how they can be translated from theory into practice.
