A confidential support group for veterinarians.
Or… if you just need to talk to somebody.
Support4Support was started because a group of veterinarians saw their support staff struggling with similar challenges. Support4Support is a confidential support group for veterinary support staff.
We are from all areas of the veterinary profession. We’re here to help colleagues.
Vets4Vets® support team members are experienced, active and retired, veterinarians. Support4Support team members are experienced veterinary technicians and veterinary support staff educators. All team members care about you and all colleagues.
Professional therapists with years of experience supporting veterinarians and veterinary support staff complete the teams.
Vets4Vets® and Support4Support are not replacements for individual or local support. We do not provide mental health diagnosis or treatment. We do understand, and have years of experience helping colleagues overcome the challenges facing you and all veterinary team members. We’re here to help.
The Vets4Vets® resource is made possible through individual donations and grants given to the VIN Foundation, along with the Dr. Sophia Yin Memorial Fund. This support allows us to extend a helping hand to every veterinarian from anywhere in the world (no VIN membership is required). You may support this vital resource by selecting Help for Veterinarians on the GIVE page.
The Vets4Vets® confidential veterinary support group is part of the Thrive in Five Toolkit to help recent veterinary school graduates thrive in their first five years out of school. Learn more about the Thrive in Five Toolkit.
– This resource is helpful if you are: a veterinary student, a new veterinary graduate, a veterinarian.
