Many doctors and medical professionals regret their career decision. This high stress career revolves around life and death decisions, but it must be balanced with making money for hospitals and insurance companies.

Most doctors find the long hours and the lack of appreciation just aren’t worth it.


Dentists are high on the list of professionals with the highest rates of suicide due to the stressful nature of their job. Even with an endless flow of clients, dentists find that the dental school loans and lack of prestige don’t boost morale.


Research consistently show that lawyers exhibit the highest form of depression amongst all professionals. Lawyers have the highest rate of depression among all professions and suffer from high suicide rates.
