This guide helps people recognize signs of distress in physicians. These signs can vary, as distress manifests uniquely from person to person, but there are some common indicators. Approaching someone in distress can be uncomfortable, so the guide also offers practical recommendations for how to respond to medical professionals in distress, along with a comprehensive list of physician-specific resources as additional support.
