February 26, 2021, John Budin, MD, “Psychiatrist as Patient: Caring for the Caregiver”

Documentary film presented by the National Depression Bipolar Support Alliance
For decades, John Budin maintained a thriving psychiatric practice in New York City, caring for hundreds of patients. He taught medical students at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital and directed a mental health program at Montefiore Medical Center. Yet he revealed his own bipolar disorder to no one.

Now retired, John is engaging his colleagues in a conversation he hopes will transform the climate of secrecy that exists in many workplaces. Mental health stigma can be overcome, making it safe for medical professionals — and all of us — to find affirmation and support.

There will be a group discussion after the documentary.
