Who is Peer Support for?

The Peer Support Program is a free service available to all Nemours associates, residents and fellows. ALL referrals and services are kept confidential.

When associates should call

In response to stressors at work or home such as:

  • Exhaustion/burn-out
  • Feeling distressed following a traumatic patient event
  • Personal stressors such as relationship or financial concerns

Everyone can use some extra support sometimes, especially during stressful times like those we are currently experiencing. There is no shame in asking for support — and it is not a sign of weakness.

When is Peer Support available?

Support is provided days, nights and weekends based upon your preference.

How does an associate contact Peer Support?

Associates can reach out either by emailing peersupport@nemours.org or by calling (833) 921-1244 (toll-free). A member of the Peer Support team will respond to the email or phone message within 24 hours.
