The Checkup Podcast – Episode 3: Mandatory reporting - what happens when a doctor is depressed?

Sarah Hull
Olivia Pine

Unfortunately, the stigma that surrounds mental health within Australia’s health care industry has deterred doctors from looking after their mental health – whether by taking time off, or seeking professional treatment.

In Episode 3 of The Checkup, BN health law solicitors Sarah Hull and Olivia Pine discuss how the current mandatory reporting requirements under the Health Practitioner National Law have the potential to deter practitioners from seeking treatment for mental health issues.

If you need to talk to someone about your mental health, please don't hesitate to call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or BeyondBlue on 1300 224 636.
