1. Yesterday was #SuicidePreventionDay. At the start of the day, I didn't know the risk of #suicide among female #healthcare professionals is 2⃣4⃣% higher than
the national average🇬🇧 [ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulati…]. It's a scary thought.
2. After returning to #medschool and learning of the death of one of our fellow #MedStudents, this #suicide statistic really hits home.

For me #SuicidePreventionDay was a day to reflect on these potentially preventable losses; losses affecting my own family & many others... ⚰️💔
3. Most of us know #MentalHealthMatters, but raising #MentalHealthAwareness isn't always enough. We must all do more to speak up, speak out and check in with others before it's too late for another life...⌛️

👉Suicide is scary, but saving a life is simple: #AskTellSaveALife 🎗️

Interested in how I teach #SoMe to medical students? Here are my slides from yesterday’s #MS1 presentation.

The format was different this year. Previously, I’ve taught 3 hr workshops to groups of 12.

All 186 students were together for this 40 min lecture then split into groups.
This is always a fun question to ask an audience! Every hand 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️ except for one student.

185/186 were on some form of social media.

What about last year? The numbers were even better! Every student who participated in a poll was on some form of social media.

Why is FB so popular? The school sets up a student only group prior to the academic year. Many rejoin the platform for access.
