The Doctors' Support Network (DSN) is a fully confidential, friendly
peer support group
for doctors and medical students with mental health concerns including stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, psychoses and eating disorders.
DSN believes that contact with and support from other medics can help recovery. All DSN members have either themselves been troubled at some stage in their lives or support the aims of the organisation.
DSN is currently the only independent body representing doctors with non substance use related, mental health conditions in the UK.
DSN actively campaigns to improve mental health care for doctors and is involved in consultations (representing an informed user view) with professional organisations such as the General Medical Council.
