Do No Harm" documentary by filmmaker Robyn Symon has recently ended its Kickstarter campaign with 857 backers and $131,313 pledges. It will expose how doctors take their own lives for the sake of saving patients. Here are the details of the film.

Silent suicidal epidemic affecting doctors

Doctors experience a frightening phenomenon throughout their career. They spend sleepless nights and years of studying medicine. After taking the Hippocratic Oath, they dedicate their lives to help and save others. However, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention revealed that medical professionals are at risk of suicide. Among them, physicians have the highest rate, according to Kick Starter.

Indeed, a significant number of doctors take their own lives while doing their noble job in a sick health care system. This situation does not only affect them, but it also puts their patients at risk. The medical community is aware of this situation, yet little has been done to address the problem.

Two-time Emmy-winning producer and director Robyn Symon is now creating awareness about the medical profession's dirty secret and the #Hippocratic hoax. This will be through the upcoming film entitled "Do No Harm."

What is the message of the film?

"Do No Harm" film carries a message about the alarming rate of doctors' suicides. It will reveal its causes as well as its range of victims. The film will also promote awareness about the silent suicidal epidemic and expose the flawed medical culture, as reported by Blasting News.

This feature-length documentary aims at and yearns for a change. Hence, it targets medical policies, medical schools, training hospitals, clinics, and medical conferences to take action.

"Do No Harm" also exposes the poor treatment that doctors suffer. It will also feature the marathon work and the endless hours of duty that eventually result in sleep deprivation. In line with this, Delicia Haynes, M.D. said that sleep-deprived physicians are under the influence of an epidemic. They have to make life and death decisions in such a state which increases the possibilities of medical errors which threaten all patients.
