External Resources

AAPA has put together these resources from other websites to provide PAs with even more information about burnout, moral distress, well-being, and mental health.

AAPA is not responsible for the content of these external links.

If you begin to feel distress at any time, please seek the assistance of a mental health professional. If this is an emergency, call 9-1-1 now or the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 (1-800-799-4889 for the deaf and hard of hearing).
