One of Us: National Physician Suicide Awareness Day is Sept. 17, 2020

From ACEP:

Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020 marks the third annual National Physician Suicide Awareness (NPSA) Day. NPSA Day remains a day of reflection, dedicated to honor the memory of our colleagues who have died by suicide. The day raises awareness about physician suicide and should encourage discussion of how we can prevent it. This year’s theme is “One of Us,” and is meant to remind us that we, as a community, are at risk. The theme is also meant to remind us that we all have a part to play in preventing suicide among our colleagues. Suicide is preventable if we take the time to care for one another and destigmatize the issues that underlie it by being vulnerable and open to conversations about them.
