Event description

Description

The mental and physical health of doctors, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals in Australia is an ongoing concern within the medical profession and community. Research from beyondblue has highlighted the high rates of suicide, depression, anxiety, substance use and self-medication throughout the profession. To actively promote mental wellness the ACSEP has teamed up with beyondblue to create a family friendly event, designed for doctors, medical students, nurses, practice managers, associated allied health professionals along with their family and friends. It’s time to help the people that help us. The event also aims to promote the benefits of exercise to the mental health of the wider community.

The Doctor Dash aims to:

  1. Promote the benefits of sport and exercise in the prevention and treatment of mental illness – along with other common and often serious medical conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and many cancers.

  2. Raise awareness for beyondblue and to help fund their many programs, such as the doctors’ mental health program. All money raised through ticket sales will be used to run the event, with ALL remaining proceeds donated directly to beyondblue.

  3. Increase awareness of the issues affecting the mental health of doctors, medical students, nurses and allied health professionals and work to destigmatise mental illness.

  4. Reduce barriers to, and encourage, help-seeking behaviour within the medical community.
