Yet Another Doctor Suicide

I read this today. This breaks my heart. This is the second suicide death I learned in the last 3 months in this city. Neither were junior doctors. My heart breaks when I read these phrases: “stresses of his chosen career” & “he failed to seek the support”. Although the words of this obituary may have been respectfully chosen by a colleague or family, I wonder if the emphasis on his chosen career and his failure to get support is truly right. Perhaps it is our failure to provide him a career worth living for? Perhaps it is our failure to support him? Is it really his failure?
