Destigmatizing Urology: Dr. Pruthi discusses mental health

Podcast

“I think we often encourage our patients to share concerns about depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions, yet are less likely ourselves to seek help due to this issue of stigma,” says Raj S. Pruthi, MD, MHA, FACS.

In this episode, Urology Times® Assistant Editor Janelle Hart spoke with Raj S. Pruthi, MD, about the stigmas associated with mental health and seeking care for mental health issues. Additionally, he emphasizes the need for prioritization of mental health among physicians especially, as the quality of care for patients only decreases when mental health is left unattended to. Pruthi is a professor and chair of the department of urology at the University of California, San Francisco.
