I'm about to qualify as a medical doctor and for the last 10 years have been thinking about pschiatry as a career. At the moment I've been in therapy for nearly a year and on various antidepressants since a friend of mine killed herself.

Just because you are a proffessional and interested in the field of mental health, it doesnt mean you are immune to diseases and strains on the mind. Mental health professionals and psycologists etc are very vulnerable to problems because of the cases that they come into contact with. Often they believe that they should be able to deal with things on their own, and carry the weight of other people's problems on their shoulders as well as thier own.

No treatment has worked for me yet, but I still want to follow the same career path - wierd that!
