Studies show high rates of suicide and depression across the veterinary profession. As veterinarians, we are challenged to find new ways to protect our own and our colleagues' mental health. To address this, the AVMA has developed two new mental wellness initiatives: a pilot program to train veterinarians to identify and assist colleagues who might be considering suicide, and a LinkedIn community devoted to wellness and well-being for veterinarians. Visit the AVMA@Work blog to learn more about these programs.
New AVMA programs aim to boost veterinary wellness and well-being
