We’re on a mission to beat burnout and improve well-being among professionals with high-stress positions. Burnout is an issue that affects up to 50% of working adults across all industries. It leads to reduced efficiency, on-the-job error, and even personal harm.
As part of this mission, we are aiming to have 500,000 people use the Well-Being Index to assess their well-being. This is the first step in improving and managing personal wellness. It is a powerful self-assessment tool that not only evaluates distress levels across multiple dimensions, but also includes a huge library of customizable resources.
Once an individual completes the Well-Being assessment, they will have access to resources that are tailored to their results. Each resource topic includes a video, both national and local resources, as well as a variety of ideas for next steps.
Well-Being Index Video Series: Stress and Resiliency
The Well-Being Index video series was created by Dr. Tait D. Shanafelt, M.D. and Dr. Liselotte N. Dyrbye, M.D., MHPE.

Dr. Dyrbye is the Associate Director, Research Applications, Department of Medicine Program on Physician Well-Being and focuses on research projects focused on physician well-being.
The video series is comprised of 11 video topics. Each video is between 6-12 min. in length and provides an overview of each specific topic. The video on the topic of Stress and Resiliency includes:
