Every Doctor, Every Setting: A National Framework 

Guiding coordinated action on the mental health of doctors and medical students.

The time is right to set a reform agenda in Australia that positions the mental health and wellbeing of the medical profession as a national priority. Find out more about the National Framework and how to get involved. You can support Every Doctor, Every Setting: A National Framework as a government body, an organisation or service or as an individual. 

Improving the wellbeing of doctors and medical students is a key enabler of quality patient care and healthier communities. This National Framework is based on available evidence and advice from doctors, doctors-in-training, medical students, mental health and suicide prevention experts and other key stakeholders. 

All jurisdictions, settings, services and stakeholders must be involved to ensure immediate, sustained and coordinated action.

The development of this Framework was supported by Everymind in partnership with the medical profession and mental health leaders in Australia. It was funded by the Australian Government as part of The Prevention Hub (co-led by the Black Dog Institute and Everymind) and specific project funding for Tackling Mental Ill-Health in Doctors and Medical Students.
