CMPA: Supporting Physician Wellness

Healthcare Worker Mental Health Facebook GroupEmily Sullivan with USask is involved with a research team that has created a Facebook group that is designed to disseminate evidence-based wellness, coping, and self-care resources to health professionals. If you have Facebook they'd love it if you would consider participating. You can join the group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/healthworkerscoping/.  Each week in the group we share a different coping strategy, tips for how to use it, and provide support for all of those in the health fields who are making our way through this difficult time. If you have any questions about the group feel free to contact the Stress & Wellness Research Lab at the University of Saskatchewan (who are hosting the page) at trauma.research@usask.ca or by phone at 306-966-6731.

Mentoring

Mentorship is an important part of faculty development. Mentors may be from the same department, a different department, or at a different medical school or clinical environment. Mentors may support you in your teaching or clinical practice, and you may have a different mentor for different aspects of your personal and professional life.
