Our healthcare workers never stopped. They never stopped showing up. They never stopped caring.
They never stopped, to care for themselves…
But now is the time to stop.
It’s the time to stop and say “I need Help.”
It’s the time to stop a friend and say “I am here for you.”
It’s the time to stop and address burnout.
Please if you or someone you know is suffering from burnout don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Burnout Programs and Coaches
Burnout Proof MD was created for medical professionals. When members of The White Coat Investor community expressed the need for help, we could not find the right solution, so we sought out the most experienced coaching program available, and together, we created this great support system. With Dike Drummond MD (The Happy MD), you now have access to an amazing group of tools and training. We consider it to be the best value in the industry.
You’ll have six months of weekly two-hour live coaching with a small group of physicians along with three private coaching sessions to make sure that you are on the right track. The program begins with extensive online training to give you the skillset and background to become your best you. For those who can’t virtually attend every live coaching session, questions and discussion topics can be submitted beforehand, and the sessions will be recorded. Between the training, weekly group coaching, 3 private coaching calls, and private community, you will have the tools and support you need.
Adaptrack provides a real time, data driven, personalized platform for clinician reflection. As a clinician moves through his or her day, the data collected allows Adaptrack to push focused learnings to the user. These learnings, or nudges, are easy to digest hints that help bring the clinician’s blindspots to the foreground.
By engaging with these nudges, the clinician may realize a specific risk that exists throughout their day. If unrecognized, these risks can lead to getting sued, burning out, losing efficiency in your practice or having your digital reputation tarnished.
Each learning nudge has an opportunity to journal a reflection, which is captured by voice or text on Adaptrack. This reflection may be what you were thinking or what you were feeling – but it ultimately led to what you were doing. The outcome may have been positive or negative. Either way, it provides an opportunity to learn and share. One personal reflection may lead to an endless journal of shared learnings that transform patient and personal care.
Harpreet Chana now runs the Mental Wealth Academy which is a company she set up in 2019 to help strengthen the mental health of professionals and organizations within healthcare. Having experienced stress and burnout at a senior level, like many in the sector, she ignored it for many years and pushed through regardless which sadly resulted in severe depression. Working with a mindset coach, she managed to turn her life around and it impacted her so much, she qualified herself as an Executive Leadership Coach and has now dedicated her life to help others in healthcare from succumbing to long term stress and burnout.
She does this through training and coaching others to invest in their ‘mental wealth.’ This is the building of self-leadership skills and self-awareness so that they know how to respond to stress, can self-regulate/self-manage better and become better leaders of themselves/others to ultimately live a happier, more fulfilled life.
Certified Coach with special interest in Healthcare Burnout recovery and prevention. I’m also an ER Pharmacist at a Level I Trauma Center and have continued to work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
So I’m walking with you. I understand your pain points very well. The human mind and psyche can really only take so much before we hit a wall and I was personally at that point back in 2018 after I lost my mom to cholangiocarcinoma. And then had to return to work in the ER which was very triggering environment for me. So I get it.
Coaching turned out to be the lifeline I was looking for. The thought work, the mindset the shifts in perspective, learning how to actively process through those uncomfortable emotions, instead of trying to eat, drink or Netflix my way around them- was hard, but so worthwhile. we all get in our own way, but often can’t see it for ourselves. If you’d like to learn more about how we can work together head over to FayHosseini.com or tune into A Dose of Perspective Podcast. It’s time to take care of you my friend.
