Stress is usually adaptive and healthy. It can help us meet deadlines and pass
exams. However…. long-lasting and unresolved stress can manifest as:
Increased use of alcohol/ cigarettes/ drug
Absenteeism
More anxious
Social withdrawal
Tearfulness
Relationship problems
Excessive worrying
Sleeping more or less than usual
Sexual difficulties
Enjoyment, lack of
Decreased concentration
Unresolved chronic stress may result in depression.
It may manifest with the signs and symptoms above but in a more severe form.
DEPRESSION FACT!
Incidence of depression is higher in
medical students than the general
student population at 12-24%.
Some students may not tell the medical school if they are suffering with
depression because they think they will be expelled from the medical school
or it will impact on their future job. These myths simply are NOT true.
Currently depression in medical students is
under recognised and therefore under treated.
Do not hesitate to contact the Student
Development and Support Office (SDSO);

‘I will be thrown out of
medical school’
‘The medical school think I am
not competent to be a doctor’
‘I won’t get a job if they know’
--
NONE OF THESE ARE TRUE.
People suffering with depression may not approach anyone with
their problems because they think the above is true. Currently
depression in medical students is under recognised and therefore
under treated.
Don’t suffer in silence.
