Webinar series focusses on profession’s mental health

Royal Canin and Vets: Stay, Go, Diversify are to hold a month-long free CPD webinar series on mental health in the veterinary profession.

The company says the webinars will equip veterinary professionals with strategies to strengthen wellbeing both individually and for practice teams.

Lauren Hayes, Scientific and Regulatory Affairs Manager at Royal Canin, said: “Working within clinical veterinary practice can be hugely rewarding and enriching, but it cannot be ignored that our industry also has its challenges.

“Veterinary surgeons have a significantly higher risk of suicide compared to the general population and mental health issues around work life balance and compassion fatigue are widespread.

“Through our webinar series, we hope to encourage conversations around mental health and help provide advice directly from leading experts.”

The one-hour webinars will take place at 7pm every Wednesday throughout September.

  • 7th September with Dr Rosie Allister, Insight to impact: how can we support collective mental health?
  • 14th September, Adrian Nelson Pratt, Building better workplaces – real stories from those finding their sweet spot in general practice
  • 21st September, Carolyne Crowe, Assertive Conversations
  • 28th September, Katie Ford (pictured right), The Imposter Syndrome Club: Let’s get talking!
