What is Healing Our Healers?

It’s About Not Just “Powering Through”
It’s about having a safe harbor to empower and equip you with the tools you need to take care of yourself as well as you take care of your patients.

Why Did We Create This Program?

The statistics of burnout among physicians is as high as 62% in some specialties. Volusia County physicians need a confidential resource to turn to in time of need; to help them cope and heal.
As part of our continuing commitment to the health of VCMS members and all Volusia County physicians, the VCMS is offering access to completely confidential and autonomous counseling sessions. No identifying information is shared with or reported to the VCMS. The counselors confirm that the physician holds a valid Florida Medical License and practices in Volusia County.


VCMS provides up to three free sessions per year with a physician-vetted psychologist (see below).
