Mental health issues are common among health professionals due to the enormously stressful nature of their work. The paucity of workforce, resources, and high patient load, are liable to make mental health professionals, including psychiatrists, overburdened. The work pressure, demand-output mismatch, and burden of expectations from psychiatrists may make them distressed despite their training in stress management. This review discusses key mental health issues faced by psychiatrists, their possible attributes, and remedial measures.
