Workplace Health and Wellness

December 6, 2022 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM MST

Every May for the last 71 years, Canadians in communities, schools, workplaces and the House of Commons have rallied around CMHA Mental Health Week. A study conducted by researchers at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC) showed that “as an occupation, veterinarians and their staff have higher levels of stress, burnout, compassion fatigue, anxiety and depression. The industry as a whole reported more suicidal ideation and lower resilience than Canadians generally”.

This session will offer tools that not only bring awareness to mental health, but offer key points that help open up candid and empathic conversations within your practice.
