The “coronacrisis” has brought into greater public awareness the increased risk of mental distress, anguish and suicidality among healthcare workers. Medical society leaders have the opportunity to help prevent physician and trainee suicides through programming, messaging, influence, and friendships. We will discuss reasons physicians are at greater risk, messaging that can be targeted towards them to defeat hopelessness, and models of intervention and prevention that have worked in various places.
