Doctors in Distress

Doctors in Distress is a medical mental health charity, which provides peer support for all UK based healthcare workers to promote and protect their mental health and prevent suicide.  

We are excited to play a key role in this year’s Acute and General Medicine event. Two of our Trustees will be giving talks around the topics of bullying and harassment, and wellbeing and resilience. 

Our charity was set up in 2019 by Amandip Sidhu following the suicide of his brother Dr Jagdip Sidhu, a consultant cardiologist. 

Our aim is to reduce the stigma around mental health in the health sector. We want to drive a positive wellbeing support culture for healthcare workers and promote a duty of care by employers for the mental health of their staff.
