It's no secret that pharmacists have work stress. What you may not know is the truth about pharmacist suicide risk. 

Anecdotally, I hear pharmacists saying, "burnout runs rampant through the pharmacy industry," just as it does through other healthcare professions. Because pharmacists face issues like unrealistic metric goals from management, odd shifts, increased workload, decreased support staff, unachievable expectations from the public (i.e., never make a mistake), our industry is ripe for mental health trouble.

Coupled with the high-stress environment and the fact that pharmacists often work in isolation, it should come as no surprise that pharmacists are more likely to struggle with mental health issues and burnout, and face a greater suicide risk than many other occupations, as this article aims to prove.
