Calling all Medical Professionals, Veterinarians and Public Health Workers!
How many of your clients or patients are struggling with mental health challenges?
Do you know how to recognize staff members and colleagues who are at risk of suicide?
Do you and your staff know how to wrap around each soul in need and connect them with the appropriate resources?
Do you know how to take care of your own mental health while facing the challenge of practicing medicine?
Do you have mental and spiritual tools for deep self care during the pandemic?
Per a 2018 Centers for Disease Control & Prevention report (https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2018/p1220-veterinarians-suicide.html):
"Veterinarians in the U.S. are at an increased risk of suicide, a trend that has spanned more than three decades, according to a new CDC study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA)external icon.
The study is the first to show increased suicide mortality among female veterinarians. Female veterinarians were 3.5 times as likely, and male veterinarians were 2.1 times as likely, to die from suicide as the general population. "
I’m available to speak to gatherings of veterinarians and healthcare professionals, about the importance of how to speak to clients, patients, staff and colleagues about mental health challenges, and how to connect those souls with resources they need.
I will speak briefly and teach yoga at Public Health in the Rockies Conference at Keystone August 25 -27, 2021.
As a veterinarian, health and life coach, former health department director, and advocate for reducing stigma around mental health challenges, I have coordinated regional work on integrating mental health into clinical and community settings in collaboration with health departments, mental health centers, local hospitals, and primary care clinics. I am honored to speak at your next conference on these topics and what resources are available for healthcare work settings to address these important issues.
I request that my travel expenses and registration for your conference be covered, with no additional charge due to my passion on this topics. Please contact me at [email protected] for inquiries.
