About

Every single veterinary professional receives the support they need so that we don’t lose one more. Because we are all one, and you are never alone.

Never Alone

Veterinary professionals are at risk for mental health problems. Veterinary professionals are twice as likely to experience serious psychological distress and one and a half times as likely as the general public to have experienced depression. One in six veterinary professionals considers suicide. That’s three times the US national average. That’s a statistic we just cannot abide any longer.

We are not therapists. We do not hold degrees in mental health. We encourage all of our members to seek the services of mental health professionals as an important part of self care. What we are is a large group of veterinary professionals who totally understand where you are coming from. We are here to listen, commiserate, and give each other a shoulder, an ear, and a bit of advice when needed.

As an organization NOMV aims to not only provide online peer to peer support, but provide members of our profession with the education and tools they need to fight this battle. Afterall, none of us are alone in this struggle. We are ALL ONE.
