Mental health services
Getting help for any kind of mental health or domestic issue can feel overwhelming. Reaching out can be intimidating, and often it can feel tough to justify that what you’re going through is “serious enough” to reach out.
No matter what issue you’re facing, there is a free, confidential service that can help. Most are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.
NOMV provides the necessary support to all members of veterinary teams and students who are struggling or considering suicide.
