Establishing a Working Group on Mental Health: Fostering Well-being Among Psychiatry Trainees and Medical Students

In recognition of the unique challenges faced by psychiatry trainees and medical students, we are thrilled to introduce a new initiative: the Working Group on Mental Health. This group is dedicated to proactively addressing the well-being of our members, acknowledging the demands and stressors inherent in the journey towards a career in psychiatry.

Objectives and Focus Areas:

Awareness Building:

Shed light on the prevalence of mental health challenges within the psychiatry trainee and medical student community.

Challenge and dispel stigmas surrounding mental health to create a culture of openness, open the doors to neurodiversity.

Education and Resilience:

Tap into expert insights to offer training sessions on identifying and addressing mental health challenges.

Research and Insights:

Conduct research to understand the unique mental health needs and stressors faced by psychiatry trainees and medical students.

Evaluation and Evolution:

Regularly evaluate the effectiveness of implemented initiatives.

Request feedback from members to ensure the Working Group remains responsive to the evolving needs of our community.

We invite all interested members to join us in shaping the future of this critical initiative. Your perspectives and experiences are invaluable as we work together to create a supportive and resilient community within our association.
