Aust Vet Mental Health Awareness & Suicide Prevention Ltd


Mental health and well being is common topic of conversation including within the veterinary profession. Surveys in the UK and USA indicate this is the main concern within the profession and limited evidence this also applies in Australia. Recent evidence demonstates that have the highestsuicide rate in the professions and is almost four times that of the general Australian population.

Three veterinarians - each on unique paths and passionate about mental health- have come together to promote the importance of mental health and to contribute to prevention of suicide in the profession. The charity was founded in 2017 as a tool to achieve this aim.

The charity strives to promote awareness of mental health in the profession, equip veterinarians with the personal skills to maintain and improve personal skills and well being through interactive seminars, and maintain relevant resources on our website for veterinarians to access. Future plans include creating a network of veterinarians trained in supporting their colleagues in distress. Future research will also be supported when applicable.

The website still in its infancy, can be found at for more information. We are gratefull for your time and support.
