Mental Health Support and Resources for Sonographers
In 2018, Sonography Canada conducted a mental health survey along with the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) and the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). That survey found that 59% of responding sonographers indicated that they often or always found their work to be stressful and 70% signaled a lack of access to stress management or stress reduction programs in their current workplace.
