    Disclosure of Mental Illness in Medical Practitioners - Expert Insights for Health Professionals

    Disclosure of Mental Illness in Medical Practitioners - Expert Insights for Health Professionals

    Medical professionals face significant challenges when they are experiencing an episode of mental illness. Their doctors play a dual role as both the health provider and colleague who could report to the medical board and affect another health provider's capacity to practice. This can hinder help-seeking in health providers, increase stigma, and delay early intervention.

    This panel session examines the barriers to disclosure for medical professionals and demystify the threshold for reporting to the medical board for impairments in the context of mental health disorders. We also discuss new resources and programs to support health practitioners in self-care and support-seeking.

    Panelists
    Phoebe Holdenson Kimura – General Practitioner and Lived Experience Representative
    Peter Baldwin - Clinical Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist at Black Dog Institute
    Kay Wilhelm - Liaison Psychiatrist at St Vincent's Hospital, Professor at University of Notre Dame and Conjoint Professor at UNSW Psychiatry

    The Trauma of Emergency Service Workers - Expert Insights for Health Professionals

    The Trauma of Emergency Service Workers - Expert Insights for Health Professionals

    Australia’s emergency service workers keep our communities safe. Encountering unprecedented levels of emotional distress when responding to crises is part of the job. While for most people the distress will only last a few days or weeks, some will go on to develop mental health issues. Learning more about the impacts of trauma, skills to help manage the distress of your patients and what support services are available to them can help with their recovery.

    This Expert Insights panel session discusses the impact of traumatic events on emergency service workers and communities, how to identify trauma and what supports are available with a spotlight on those available through Phoenix Australia and Black Dog Institute. Opportunities for further training and where to find useful evidence based resources are also be discussed.

    Panelists
    Prof. Sam Harvey - Deputy Director, Black Dog Institute
    Peter - ex firefighter and lived experience representative
    Alexandra Howard - Director of Disaster and Public Health Emergencies, Phoenix Australia
