Peer Support

As our employees strive to live our core mission, sometimes the unexpected and inexplicable outcomes occur and the very individuals delivering care become the ones in need of support.

The Peer Support Team is here to support you and/or your staff through unanticipated events and difficult times that occur in the workplace with understanding, compassion and confidentiality.

Our Peer Support Counselors are nominated staff members, many who have experienced second victim/healthcare adversity, receive training in active listening and psychological first aid and are available to support their peers with complete confidentiality.

Peer Support Care Line
888.674.7337
(Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

Mindfulness and Relaxation

Baylor Scott & White has a Meditation Line available for staff and patients in need of a few minutes of alone time, our new Meditation Line offers two- or five-minute recordings by a meditation expert. The call is toll-free.

Just taking a few minutes to "stop" can offer benefits, as meditation has been proven to help reduce stress, anxiety and depression.

If you need time to relax and re-energize, call 833-593-1588.
