Are you having a tough day?

Talk it over with someone who gets it: a physician like you.

Free​ | Confidential | It's Not Counseling

Confidential. Individual. No notes or records

Peer To Peer.

Not formal counseling

Free To Arizona

Here is how it works.

Having a virtual “coffee” with a peer can be helpful, especially during a pandemic. 

Your work setting

You tell us your preferences. Don't share your full name if you don't wish to.

We will match you with another physician peer within 2 business days.

Share your concerns in a completely confidential and informal way

This is NOT counseling. It's a peer-to-peer conversation. No notes are taken. No records or reporting. 

Enjoy being a physician again

Talking about personal struggles with friends, spouses or colleagues doesn’t always feel right.

 

Physicians tend to internalize distress as part of their professional identity. It's OK to ask for help.

Taking care of yourself is another way to take care of your patients.

Not ready yet or have additional questions?

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 peer physician who can help you alleviate the pressure that can sometimes lead to destructive behavior such as substance abuse, depression or even suicide.

Are you in crisis?

While peer coaches are licensed physicians supported by CCA’s professional mental health clinicians, the program is not meant as an emergency resource. For any urgent issues or crisis situations, call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
This line is not affiliated with CCA or ArMA.
