Adam B. Hill

Friday, February 11, 2022
Dr. Adam B. Hill is a human being, a husband, a blessed father of two young children, an avid Butler University Bulldog, a native Indiana son, and a pediatric palliative care physician. Hill openly shares his own story of depression, suicidal thoughts, and alcoholism while working in the field of medicine. Now, years into recovery, Hill shares his experience to help other individuals still suffering. In the midst of a national epidemic of caregiver distress, Hill reveals a rare, open, and honest perspective, which has garnered national/international speaking opportunities and assisted in lifting the veil of secrecy regarding caregiver mental health. Hill's voice is leading a cultural revolution for how we approach mental health conditions in the professional workforce.
