We've been bringing you stories of doctors wellbeing for a while in the podcast, but we noticed a pattern. Woman would come on and talk about their own difficulties, men would talk about other peoples - so we wanted to dive into that a bit, and called out on twitter for men who would be willing to open up to our listeners about their own mental health. This interview is with Zeshan Quereshi - registrar in paediatrics, author and TedX talker. In this conversation we talk about why it is that men are particularly disinclined to open up about their difficulties at work, and what Zeshan has done to try and support his own.
