EP 16: Veterinarian Mental Health – Exposing a Hidden Crisis
In this episode we sit down with psychologist Dr. Katie Lawlor and veterinarian Dr. Alett Mekler to discuss the mental health crisis within the veterinary field in 2020 that resulted in a surge of deaths by suicide.
If you're a vet interested in Dr. Lawlor's support group, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up for a 6-week group or an individual session.

EP 14: Kate's Story (part 1): A Decade of Misdiagnosis
We are kicking off Mental Health Awareness Month with Kate and her story with a decade-long, psychosis-inducing misdiagnosis and how dogs saved her life.
Give Isabel a gold star! She is the best host ever!
Thank you, Kate, for sharing your story. Can’t wait to see Maple join the family❤️
I’m incredibly grateful for Kate for telling her story. Dogs are (a very important!) part of our complex lives and in order to really talk about the roles they play and how amazing they are, it’s so important that we acknowledge and honor that complexity. Thank you. Part 1 of the Kate episode meant the world to me for so many reasons and I can’t wait to learn more about the fabulous Waffle in part 2. You all rock. Thank you for not shying away from the hard stuff.
