You Okay, Doc?’s focus is to support the mental health and wellbeing of doctors across the globe. We are a service provider platform that provides support for doctors and have recently extended these services to nurses through You Okay, Nurse? In 2018, 80% of UK doctors were high risk of burnout and were two-four times more likely to die by suicide when compared to the general population. These statistics have been compounded by the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and are also echoed throughout the world, with USA and Australia reporting similar figures. Sick days in the NHS due to mental health during the pandemic are estimated to have cost £1.5 billion. The COVID-19 pandemic has facilitated a positive movement towards tackling the mental health issues of healthcare workers.
We take a multifaceted approach addressing this pressing issue and combine evidence-based solutions with practical services that are readily adopted by our end-users and across hospitals nationally.
We provide four flagship programmes underpinned by current research into peer support and trauma support, curated by leading experts and psychotherapists. We have partnered with organisations in the UK and US (including an initiative of Harvard University), a large corporate and are currently piloting our programmes in three NHS trusts and continue to build our network and community worldwide.
