Resident Wellness and Counseling Center
The Resident Wellness and Counseling Center provides mental health and wellness services to UT Southwestern residents and fellows.
Medical training can be a stressful and challenging time, which may contribute to burnout, decreased self-care, and difficulties with work and relationships. As a multidisciplinary team, we provide support and activities to help you with the challenges inherent to medical training, as well as assist you with achieving your personal and professional goals. When physicians themselves are healthier, they provide better care to their patients and their communities.
We also provide department-level support and education about physician stress, burnout, and mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and substance use disorders. In doing so, we hope to decrease stigma, increase outreach, and help build a culture of wellness and concern for ourselves and our colleagues.
The Mission of the UT Southwestern Resident Wellness & Counseling Clinic is to support the wellness of our residents and fellows by reducing psychological distress while enhancing mental health, well-being and quality of life via high quality, confidential, culturally sensitive services.
Multicultural Mission Statement
We accept and appreciate all differences among people, including those of national origin, race, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, functional ability, socio-economic status, age, and religious affiliation. We believe that valuing intersectional cultural diversity honors each individual’s unique experiences, while also enhancing the quality of life in our campus, our communities, and the world.
