Mental health and illness are an extensive issue that can affect medical students in Universities. It is a recognized fact by medical students and the public that studying medicine contributes to stress. Medical students have reported that the stigma associated with mental illness was common in the student body and many students would rather discuss these issues with their friends and family rather seek professional help. Although many barriers to seeking help have been identified, several students still express their fears over confidentiality and unemployment.
