Having engaged employees is critical to any organization, and what becomes clear is that there’s a wellness component to it. As we improve wellness services, we also want to help shift the culture, shed stigma and remove taboo regarding mental health and well-being.
All faculty physicians, residents and fellows at the College of Medicine – Jacksonville recently received an email inviting them to take part in an assessment from the Well-Being Index.
The assessment is an opportunity to better understand your overall well-being and areas of risk compared with other physicians across the United States. Information about local and national resources is provided, as well.
The assessment is 100% anonymous and confidential. Individual information and scores are private and won’t be shared with UF Health personnel or anyone else. The only information obtained is aggregate data, which will help influence conversations concerning future wellness initiatives.
For more information and the Well-Being Index and overall well-being efforts on campus, contact Mark McIntosh, M.D., M.P.H., medical director of employee wellness at UF Health Jacksonville, at email@example.com.
