Signs you may be struggling to cope
Things to look out for in yourself when you’re finding everyday life hard.
We know that one in four people in the general population will experience a mental health problem each year. By 2030, it is estimated that there will be approximately two million more adults in the UK with mental health problems than there were in 2013.
Compared to the general population, there is evidence of elevated psychological distress in the veterinary profession with higher levels of:
• Depressive symptoms
• Suicidal thoughts
• Suicide risk
This is true across almost all of the countries where research has been conducted.
It has been life changing. Vetlife Health Support really helped me understand my thought process and why I was doing what I was doing. There wasn’t any pressure as was over the phone.
