As May’s Mental Health Awareness Month ends, you are urged to make a commitment to yourself on one thing you can and will do that supports your mental health and then share it with at least one other person.
The ACS is committed to surgeon well-being and promoting mental health and access to supportive services. Read the ACS Statement on Surgeon Well-Being.
The ACS Surgeon Well-Being Program fosters well-being, resilience, and work-life integration for surgeons at every career stage. Through education, resources, tools, and advocacy, the ACS encourages surgeon’s health and well-being to ensure the physical and mental strength necessary to support their professional pursuits and provide optimal patient care. The ACS supports policies and evidence-based interventions and partners with the medical community to support legislation that improves and supports surgeon’s mental health and access to care.
