What are the 3 signs, or horsemen, of physicians struggling?

According to Dr Currier, the 3 horsemen to be aware of are depression, excessive use of alcohol, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you are struggling with any of these, please seek mental health care; you cannot care for your patients to the full extent if you are not feeling your best.

Dr Currier is a professor of psychiatry and chairman of the department of psychiatry & behavioral neurosciences at the University of South Florida.
