#OgilvyHealthxSXSW23

Presented by Ogilvy Health

It’s 2032 and the Doctors are Gone

Mar 10, 2023

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

Mental health is a public health issue, but are we really addressing it? Most public conversations and educational programs focus on teens, young adults and general consumers. Yet one group has been overlooked: healthcare professionals, particularly physicians and veterinarians. The reality is, our docs and vets are not okay. They have the highest suicide rate of any profession. 64% of U.S. doctors have reported pandemic burnout and the number of vets with psychological distress is more than 2x that of U.S. adults. More disturbing, a recent report projects a shortage of 124,000 physicians in the next 12 years if this continues. Our panel will explore physicians’ mental health challenges, barriers to getting help, and how the health industry can provide better support services.
