ACEP continues to hear the sobering statistics surrounding physician mental health, and we know your job isn’t getting any easier. EM physicians stand compassionately beside patients and their families during their worst moments, but the emotional and physical burden eventually takes a toll. We know it’s not an easy fix, but ACEP is dedicated to developing resources and providing support that can help you weather the storm.
The ACEP Wellness & Assistance Program offers ACEP members exclusive access to three free counseling or wellness sessions in partnership with Mines & Associates. Sessions are available 24/7 by phone, text or online messaging, or you can schedule a face-to-face appointment near your office, home or school.
Counseling sessions can cover everyday issues including stress, anxiety, depression, family issues, drug and alcohol abuse, relationships, death and grief, more. Wellness coaching sessions are 30-minute phone calls to help you reach your personal wellness goals. NBME board-certified wellness coaches can help you set specific wellness goals and plan for progress checks along the way to help you reach your objectives. This new program is strictly confidential and is free with your ACEP membership.
