When it comes to mental health care in EM, academic leaders and educators are key influencers. Not only are they often the first to notice and address mental health struggles in their students, as mentors they are in a position to reduce stigma by modeling mental health self-care and normalizing help seeking. Moreover, their position of leadership allows them to identify innovative approaches to resilience training and mental health treatment and integrate comprehensive wellness and mental health support into the learning environment.
