In these times of crisis, a community of well-being is increasingly important.

In these times of crisis, a community of well-being is increasingly important. We are thrilled to offer you new, virtual group coaching sessions with other ACP Well-being Champions, facilitated by Dr. Kerri Palamara. In our recent survey, a majority of Well-being Champions responded that they are looking for more goals and direction, help with planning chapter-based activities, and collaborative partnerships. Take positive action and sign up for these monthly coaching sessions that can help focus your goals for your well-being work and build partnerships with other Champions.

We know that the months and years ahead will be challenging for our frontline workers. As past pandemics and disasters have shown us, the mental health challenges we and our colleagues may face will be tremendous. As we move toward the new normal in health care, let's work together to make it more inclusive, more value-based, and more fulfilling. The resources below provide valuable information that can help you increase the well-being of your colleagues and yourself.
