Project Description

The Duval County Medical Society Foundation is taking a bold and proactive step to curb an epidemic of physician burnout and suicide that has hit the industry. Physician burnout rates are above 50% and sadly, a number of physicians right here in Duval County have taken their own lives in just the past six months.

For a variety of reasons, it is impossible for physicians to gain access to the same mental health resources that you can access any day. That is why the DCMS Foundation has worked with the Florida Board of Medicine to create this program which provides free and confidential mental health services to physicians... helping them to stay healthier and better fit to serve our community.
