This conversation is especially important considering the gap between how common it is to be mentally unwell in medical school and how uncommon it is for this to be a part of the voiced medical school narrative. One thing I would add is that it is always okay to seek and accept help, both from friends and loved ones, and from professional mental health care providers. Many schools provide counseling services, and even those that don’t should be able to connect you to a mental health provider if that is something you think could be helpful.
