Simon and I have been friends for many years, and I have seen him at his highest, and his lowest. He is a living truth that it is possible to reach the highest level as a surgeon, experience significant personal and professional losses, and slowly heal to create a healthy balance. HealthCare Anonymous is an honest, raw, analytical, and sometimes harrowing account of this journey. Simon’s book comes at a critical time as many in healthcare are looking to leave the profession, and it offers a framework for understanding how the system works and proposes positive and hopeful change.

Burnout is today less seen as a taboo and now described in diagnostic terms and is often attributed to a significant proportion of providers. Programs addressing second victims to tragedy have appeared, acknowledging the toll that adverse outcomes have on the providers as well as the patients when medical errors occur. But while framing the problem in an objective and clinical manner has afforded some element of safely in admitting the affliction, it fails to convey the devastating personal impact on its victims. In this nakedly frank and honest contribution, Dr. Maltais and his coauthors have opened the door to understanding that impact, sharing in arresting detail the personal toll the demands of healthcare today can take on providers even when things seem to be going well.

I have had a long professional career at the highest level of soccer. The character traits, personal sacrifices, and self-dedication that is required to function in high-intensity environment such as professional sports mirrors in many ways what healthcare systems and their workers must endure daily. As of one of Simon’s close friends and someone who also battled and overcame depression, anxiety, addiction, and suicidal tendencies successfully, this book enlightens a path to support any individual who is looking to transform their life. High performing professionals, whether they are athletes or healthcare workers, often struggle with maintaining a sustainable work-life balance. Simon’s book sheds the light on the importance of mental illness and starts a movement towards recovery!
