Help During These Challenging Times…

Our community’s physicians and healthcare workers are navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak with courage and compassion. They are facing unprecedented circumstances in their work & home environments and are being tasked with exceptional demands.

Founded by local physicians, the Nevada Physician Wellness Coalition (NPWC) works to provide resources to physicians & their families to address burnout and to prevent suicide. We want to remind you that our resources are in full force to support those who are working so hard during this difficult time.

NPWC’s Physician & Family Resource Line provides free and confidential information and links to resources for physicians, medical students, and their families.

The Physician & Family Resource Line...

  • Operated by licensed psychologists with expertise in physician stress
  • Monday through Friday, 9 am - 5 pm
