Mutual Peer Support (English):

As a psychiatrist who treats physician colleagues, Dr. Mamta Gautam has been hosting a free daily Zoom call to offer mutual peer support to colleagues (on a drop in basis) as we deal with COVID19.

  • This is not therapy or psychiatric care, just peer support.

  • It will not be recorded in any way.

  • While one cannot guarantee confidentiality, Dr. Gautam does her best to ensure privacy.

While these calls are no longer occurring daily on a regular basis, please feel free to contact Dr. Gautam at if you have any questions or concerns as she remains committed to being available for colleagues.

Emotional Care for Healthcare Professionals (Spanish):

A national network of psychologists in Mexico is offering online emotional care for health personnel during COVID19. Follow #AtencionEmocionalPersonaldeSalud #LatiendoPorMexico on Twitter for updates.
