Our mission is to transform the status of mental wellness within the profession so all veterinary professionals can survive and thrive through education, resources, and support.
NOMV's Student Support program recently gave a workshop for the Standing Committee on Wellness (SCoW). See the presentation on our YouTube Channel

A team of award winning documentarians are creating a film about NOMV, focusing on the mental health crisis in the veterinary field. So far the team has done some filming and created a trailer. They are raising funds to complete the film. You can see the trailer here.
Volunteer Spotlight: Caitlin Furlong
NOMV Secretary, Caitlin Furlong, was surprised to learn about the suicide rates in the veterinary community when she first joined B.W. Furlong & Associates as their Marketing & Events Coordinator - especially after growing up with a small animal veterinarian father. Caitlin organized a 5K event to raise awareness and funds for NOMV in 2019. That run has since grown into the NOMV Race Around the World.
Caitlin races for NOMV to help fund positive mental health initiatives and resources for the veterinary profession which is her driving passion.
