This isn't directly a question of medical advice so much as professional advice so I hope I can post this without it being removed. This probably does break a rule so if I don't find help I at least hope I can be pointed where to look.
Their details: PHQ9 is up to 15-17, GAD7 15. Family Medicine Resident in rural Canada.
They're concerned if they seek any sort of treatment the school will put them on probation and under monthly observation. Being in a rural setting they don't think treatment is possible without the whole community knowing.
They believe the depression to be situational and shouldn't be an issue once the residency concludes. They believe the anxiety is useful in helping them not to miss small details on their work.
I don't know medicine and I don't know if these rationalizations are valid or simply excuses but school probation sounds like quite a threat. Can anyone here help tell me if I should push the subject with them further? Is there a way my friend can get treatment without the negative repercussions?
