In response to the recent JAMA article on depression and suicidal ideation in medical students, we wanted to let everyone know that we have been addressing medical student mental health in our annual in-Training Mental Health Week: http://in-training.org/tag/in-training-mental-health-week.

Please read – we publish these stories in the hope that you will gain perspective and catharsis in knowing that you are not alone. If you would like to share your story, please email editorinchief@in-training.org.

If you or someone you know is in crisis, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
