Dealing with depression – a pharmacist’s perspective

Pharmacist Harpreet Chana talks openly about her mental health struggles


In C+D’s latest podcast, clinical editor Naimah Callachand speaks to Harpreet Chana – a pharmacist, professional coach specialising in mental health prevention and awareness, and founder of the Mental Wealth Academy ­– about her experience of mental health issues.

Pharmacists are under increasing pressure: working long working hours in often isolated conditions and dealing with ongoing medicine shortages. Findings from the C+D Salary Survey 2018 found that 74% of pharmacists suffer from stress at work and, following her own experience, Ms Chana emphasises that putting preventative measures and support in place for pharmacists is key to reducing stress levels.
