Mind Matters
Vol. 20 No 3 | Spring 2018
The most recent mental health services report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare estimates that four million people in Australia experienced a common mental disorder in 2015. Similarly, in the 2017–18 New Zealand Health Survey, 7.6 per cent of respondents reported experiencing psychological distress in the previous four weeks. With the high prevalence of mental illness and psychological distress reported in Australia and New Zealand, many doctors will, themselves, experience mental health problems at some time in their career. RANZCOG, the general medical profession, indemnity providers and regulatory agencies, are increasingly taking steps to help doctors improve their own mental health and that of their colleagues.
