Nation’s Top Suicide Prevention and Veterinary Medical Organizations Partner to Release New Resource for Veterinary Workplaces
AFSP and the American Veterinary Medical Association, in partnership with the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, the Veterinary Hospital Managers Association, and the Veterinary Medical Association Executives Release After a Suicide: A Guide for Veterinary Workplaces
I was privileged to be involved in the pilot of one of AFSP’s newest programs, Finding Hope: Guidance for Supporting Those at Risk. The goal is to provide practical guidance to those caregivers who have suicidal thoughts and/or have survived a suicide attempt, whom we refer to as those with “lived experience.”
