Honoring those we lost to suicide amid COVID-19

View award-winning documentary that honors physicians we lost to suicide here.

Dr. Lorna Breen recovered from COVID-19, yet was traumatized from witnessing so many deaths she required psychiatric hospitalization—then died by suicide. Dr. Leigh Sundem lost her job due the pandemic. Indian Dr. Poulami Saha, a pediatrics resident stepped off the 6th floor of her COVID-19 hospital before her shift. French physician, Dr. Bernard Gonzalez died by suicide recovering from the virus while in isolation with his wife. Within a week, we lost two Italian nurses. Daniela Trezzi, RN, recovered from coronavirus yet feared she may have infected patients. A second Nurse died by suicide in Venice and another Nurse at her London hospital. Rookie EMT John Mondello traumatized by so many deaths in NYC took his life. In the last few days we lost Sgt. First Class Leo Paz and a US Pediatrician. I just learned of an Australian Intern Dr. Ira Poon this evening.

We must be proactive to prevent more suicides.

And I need your help.
