Peer Support Network
Canadian Medical Association (CMA) Wellness Connection
Wellness Connection provides free, weekly group support sessions for medical students, residents, fellows, and practising and/or retired physicians to gather and discuss shared experiences, receive support, and seek advice and help from their peers. All sessions are led by trained facilitators and are offered in various formats and approaches, including formal peer support sessions, group support drop-ins, compassion rounds, and psychological first aid.
The Wellness Connection is available to all physicians and learners through the CMA’s Community Engagement Platform. Participants are required to register for the sessions in advance if they would like to attend. Registration is completed through the CMA’s website.
