Vets in Mind is a not for profit organisation which aims to be a source of quality information about mental health and wellness for the veterinary market, providing information from credible sources, case studies from our profession and to signpost people to programmes run by various associations, organizations, charities and support groups around the world for all members of the veterinary market whether they are in practice, academia or companies and charities in the veterinary market.
Vets in Mind aims to help by:
- Giving veterinarians the tools to become cognisant of mental health issues by providing short, general information on a number of mental health topics.
- Providing 24/7 information regarding veterinarians looking after themselves and others in the first instance as prevention, as well as how to seek further assistance for themselves or others
- Providing contacts for mental health support for team members of veterinary practices etc.
- It will be provided by an App available via the Apple and Google app stores.
The project has been supported by the Pet Plan Charitable Trust, Circa Healthcare and NAVC. Without their support this project would not have reached fruition.
We are also working with many other organisations (American Association of Equine Practitioners, British Equine Veterinary Association, VetTechlife, NAVTA, Not One More Vet, The Riptide Project, Crampton Consulting, 1Life Connected, Northern Ireland and Scotland Veterinary Support Groups, and The Riptide Project) who are contributing to the project and partnering with us to widen the awareness and use of the app to their members and other constituents.
