Study Compares Mental Health and Well Being of Veterinarians and General Population

03/13/18 By
Merck Veterinary Manual

A new study funded by Merck Animal Health surveyed the mental health and well being of veterinarians in the US and compared the findings with those of a long-running national survey of the general population. While there are substantial numbers of veterinarians reporting severe psychological distress, the prevalence is similar to that in the population as a whole.

More details on the study of veterinary well being and mental health can be found at AVMA. 

More information on self-care for veterinarians is available in the Merck Veterinary Manual.
