Free teletherapy for MSSC members

During the early weeks of the pandemic, MSSC compiled a list of local counselors and psychiatrists who offered to see physicians and other health care workers. MSSC recently expanded therapy options by partnering with Frontline Therapy Network to offer teletherapy services to physicians. MSSC members can receive up to six free, confidential teletherapy sessions with a vetted therapist.

Teletherapy may be more convenient to the hectic schedules of physicians. It also can be more private. Physicians who are interested in teletherapy can complete an application at Teletherapy Application. A psychotherapist will respond, usually the same business day, and conduct a basic assessment in order to connect the physician with the network therapist most ideal to support his or her needs.

MSSC also is partnering with WorkWell KS to provide help for other health care team members. Free resources include training for employees on mindfulness and stress management. Here is a link for more information: WorkWell KS flyer
