Today is R U OK? day.

After the loss of a classmate two months ago, mental health has become significantly more talked about both within my friend group and within my uni itself. The huge stigma around mental health has slowly reduced around uni, but elsewhere, we need to talk about things like this. 
And when it comes to vets and vet students, we all know that there is a higher rate of depression and suicide amongst us compared to the general public, so we need to stick together, and make sure that we’re all doing okay.

Ask someone if they’re okay, and listen to what they have to say. Just listen. It could make the world of difference, and save someone’s life.

I want everyone to know that my inbox is always open if anyone needs to talk or ask questions about my experience recently. And most importantly, R U OK?

"Veterinarians aren’t greedy; they make less than most pharmacists, almost all human physicians and almost all dentists. Their hourly rate is lower than your plumber’s. They went to school for half their adult life not because they want to be rich, but because they care about your pets."
