Through the Live Well Foundation, we are excited to offer

free confidential counseling services 

that support physician well-being resilience and growth. 

Take care of your patients by taking care of yourself.  

Live Well is intended to provide a safe harbor for physicians to address normal life difficulties 

in a confidential and professional environment.

The Live Well Foundation is dedicated to addressing the needs of our members by providing this voluntary resource.  Physician burnout manifests itself with disengagement, depression, relationship difficulties, early retirement, substance abuse, and suicide. Physicians tend to seek help to a lesser degree and at a later stage than other professional groups.  Our hope is to reduce the barriers that typically prevent physicians from getting the help they need and deserve.

We have contracted with independent, doctorate-level therapistswho have been evaluated by the volunteer MCMS Physician Wellness Committee.  These licensed professionals are experienced in counseling health care providers and have demonstrated dedication to the needs of the MCMS physician.  Our providers will maintain a confidential file for each physician.  No insurance will be billed and the Live Well Foundation or MCMS will not be given any information about those who utilize the program. The Live Well Foundation will pay providers based on the number of sessions conducted.  

Live Well is a confidential service offered to Madison County physicians.  Usage of these services does not need to be disclosed on hospital privilege applications.  

We will provide up to 3 complimentary sessions per calendar year.

Although the MCMS Physician Wellness committee has vetted the contracting therapists for general suitability, basic qualifications, and Alabama licensure to provide services, we do not independently verify their credentials nor do we guarantee their suitability for any particular issue for which a MCMS member may seek therapy. Referrals can be made to psychiatric care for more complex medical needs.

3.     At your first appointment you will be asked to sign the Live Well Policy Statement which will be kept by your therapist.  You will also be asked to fill out a demographic survey at each visit which will be sent to the Live Well Foundation.  These de-identified surveys will be used to evaluate program effectiveness and will serve as proof of visit.
