Physicians and other healthcare providers are often concerned that the disclosure or discovery of mental health treatment could adversely affect their ability to practice—impacting their livelihood and the security of their families. As a result, some clinicians don’t get the help they need for burnout and other challenges they face in today’s healthcare environment. That’s a crisis.
We believe healthcare providers should benefit from the same privacy protections afforded to their patients. That’s why we work with medical societies and provider associations to secure legislation supporting access to mental health services with greater confidentiality assurances.
