Stanford WellConnect

We're here to help.

Stanford WellConnect is a confidential program to promote mental health for medical trainees (residents and fellows), and all benefits eligible faculty in the School of Medicine at Stanford. Stressors can get in the way of balancing the demands of professional and personal life. Without help, work stress and other problems can intensify and affect emotional and physical well-being and professional fulfillment.
