Your Mental Health Is Important to Us…

Did you know that veterinarians are more than twice as likely as other Canadians to have suicidal thoughts?

A study conducted by the CVMA found 26.2%* of Canadian veterinarians had thoughts of suicide in the last 12 months, significantly higher than the 12.2%* of Canadians who have seriously considered suicide in their lifetime.  Now more than ever it’s important to keep talking about mental health to create awareness and to help to reduce the stigma sometimes associated with asking for help.

Heska would like to keep the conversation going by providing some helpful resources.

The following articles are written by veterinary professionals regarding mental health in the veterinary industry.
