Feeling burned out? Having a tough day? Talk it over with someone who gets it: a physician peer.

You take care of people all the time

Who is taking care of you?

Too often, physicians avoid seeking emotional support when things get tough. Talking about personal struggles with friends, spouses or colleagues doesn’t always feel right.


The emotional stress and the pressure to always be “on” can take a toll.


If you are a licensed physician in Arizona, you can visit the Virtual Doctors’ Lounge and be paired with a trained peer coach who can help you alleviate the pressure that can sometimes lead to destructive behavior such as substance abuse, depression, or even suicide.
