Volunteers Needed for the Medical Professionals Health Program

The MMA Board of Directors and Medical Professionals Health Program staff are searching for volunteers to fill four current vacancies on MPHP Advisory Committee, one of which hopefully will be a licensed psychiatrist.

 

The Medical Professionals Health Program (MPHP) is a program of the Maine Medical Association. Overseen by a peer review committee, the MPHP assists healthcare professionals challenged with substance use, mental health, and behavioral issues, as well as stress and burnout by providing confidential and compassionate monitoring, support, treatment resources, advocacy, education, and outreach.
