In every season of life and career, every person needs a safe place they can talk about their stress.
Physicians are no different, which is why the Greater Albuquerque Medical Association is pleased to offer LifeBridge New Mexico, an exclusive member-only physician wellness program that provides a confidential counseling program staffed by highly trained therapists.
Practicing medicine can be highly stressful and doctors face day-to-day challenges with emotional stress and work burnout. This can impact one's personal, practice or family life.
From work-life balance, grief, relationships, difficult medical outcomes, isolation, fatigue—whatever the issue, LifeBridge New Mexico’s trained therapists provide a safe harbor.
Address normal life difficulties and the challenges of a medical career, receive coaching on managing stress, and reclaim satisfaction in your career and personal life.
All active and retired GAMA members are welcome to use our voluntary and confidential LifeBridge New Mexico and receive five free no-cost counseling sessions.
