We encourage you to pursue mental health care for those conditions. You may pursue services directly on your own.  Resource information is provided below as well as on the Crisis Management Resources Link​ and MCHS Institutional Wellness Resources Link on the RWBC website. You may also align services by starting with a RWBC consult​ where we will listen to your concerns, help you identify options, develop a plan, and facilitate referrals if desired.​

4.  Internet-Based Resources to Support Your Mental Health:

One web-based tool for which there is data specific to its benefit for residents, is MoodGYM. The evidence is showing the benefit of these tools for well-being, resilience and management of anxiety and depression. Optimal use of these tools involves sharing your progress through the program with a therapist or trusted others as, when done independently, there is a high dropout rate.


MoodGYM addresses core cognitive-behavioral tools to understand our thoughts and emotions and then develop tools to support our wellbeing, which then reduces risks for depression, anxiety, and suicidal thinking. There is an annual subscription charge is $27.


MoodGYM and other computer-based programs are not meant to substitute for therapy. Rather they can be used in combination with therapy and may shorten the overall length of the treatment. They can also be used in a proactive manner as part of your self-care plan to build resiliency and reduce risk of mood difficulties during residency.
