These resources are designed to provide information on physician depression, including identifying signs and symptoms of depression, and to connect residents and program leaders with resources if they, or someone they know, is struggling with depression.
UPMC WELL Toolkit: Depression Resources
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) WELL Toolkit "was designed for physicians by physicians, with content that is evidence-based and specific to physicians and the practice of medicine." It speaks directly to ACGME requirements for well-being in a meaningful way.
UPMC identified two primary goals for the WELL Toolkit's Depression Section:
- provide background on physician depression with an emphasis on identifying signs and symptoms, and
- remind learners of what to do if they, or someone they know, are struggling with depression.
