There has been a wealth of discussion on the topic of wellness in veterinary medicine over the past few years and it is important that we keep this issue at the forefront. The CVMA has been looking at ways to complement wellness programs and resources that are currently available for Canadian veterinarians and veterinary students.
Here you will find pertinent resources and information from numerous sources to help support the personal well-being of veterinarians and veterinary students, with a focus on education, awareness and prevention. Additional resources and professional support services may also be available through your provincial veterinary association or veterinary college.
If you or someone you know needs help, consult the list of Helplines and Professional Support Services available in your region. In emergency or crisis situations, go to the nearest hospital or call 911.
