Show Notes

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 [email protected] to sign-up for a 6-week group or an individual session. Shanti’s Veterinary Mental Health Initiative provides an empathetic and confidential space for vets to discuss how they are persisting through career-related challenges.
