Help is just a phone call away

Just as veterinarians encourage their clients to seek their help early, the NZVA encourages all veterinarians to do the same when it comes to emotional/mental health.

NZVA members and non-members can access a confidential counselling service and a 24 hour phone service that’s open seven days a week. This service also includes up to three fully funded (by the scheme) face to face sessions with a trained psychologist.

Find more information on how to access Vitae’s counselling service here. You can also ring the NZVA Wellington Office on 04 471 0484 for a confidential talk with the Head of Veterinary Services.
