i Matter: an online resource created by the OVMA
As a veterinarian, the ability of you and your team to rise above the day-to-day challenges and achieve success is influenced by much more than technical skills, knowledge, and ability — the mental well-being of you and your team also plays a critical role.
I Matter is about building up yourself and your team members. It’s about recognizing that focusing on your own mental wellness will help you offer more value and better care. More importantly, these strategies can be used by everyone, regardless of whether or not they are currently struggling with mental wellness.
As we learn more about mental health and wellness as a society, we’re beginning to understand that veterinarians in particular face many different challenges in practice and receive little training to cope. This is why the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association has created I Matter. To visit this website, please click here.
