Dr. Carrie Jurney joins me in this episode to talk about mental health challenges of veterinary professionals. She is the board president of Not One More Vet, Inc, which is the largest profession-specific mental health advocacy organization that I’m aware of, and helps to foster a community of over 25,000 veterinarians, support staff, and vet students to promote better mental health and self care.
In today’s episode, you'll find out:
Why compassion fatigue is a real issue How Not One More Vet got its start Why being a vet is more than playing with dogs and cats all day The importance of community among veterinary professionals Why “working harder” won’t fix compassion fatigue or burnout How to recognize if someone you love is struggling mentally The role of student loans in psychologic distress Why younger vets are at higher risk of decreased well-being What drives the cost of veterinary care up How cyberbullying starts among vet professionals How to find mental health support as a veterinary professional
