About the Office for Well-Being
The Office for Well-Being at Mass General aims to improve well-being across the career span by designing initiatives to improve resilience and to create a positive work culture that supports well-being.
Dr. Darshan Mehta, interim director of the Office for Well-Being, will provide individual consultations to clinical and research faculty, postdocs and graduate students. During such consultations, faculty will be able to speak confidentially and “off the record” about their own personal and institutional concerns. Emphasis will be placed on a holistic approach to well-being including intellectual, emotional and physical health.
Our goal is to have well-being as a routine institutional performance metric with targeted interventions, tailored coaching and incorporating discussions of well-being in professional contexts (e.g., annual career conference). The Office for Well-Being aims to provide resources to promote self-care, working in collaboration with resources across Mass General/Mass General Brigham including, but not limited to, the Employee Assistance Program, the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Mass General, the Frigoletto Committee on Physician Well-Being/Mass General Physicians Organization and the Center for Physician Well-Being in the Mass General Department of Medicine.
