To help veterinarians take the critical steps necessary to care for their emotional and mental health, the AVMA has developed and gathered a number of resources on wellness and peer assistance. These include an online self-assessment tool, as well as resources on compassion fatigue, stress management, work-life balance and much more. View AVMA's Wellness and Peer Assistance resources.
