After a fantastic discussion on Wellness at retreat, we wanted to follow up with a consolidated list of resources for Wellness and Mental Health right here on campus. We will also be creating a Wellness tab under the Housestaff Tab on MedRes which will include these resources, as well as, any others that we collect.
