THE veterinary profession is recognising that rates of depression, stress and suicide are particularly high among its members, and it is taking steps both to investigate this more fully and to offer support. Last month, for example, saw the launch of vetlife.org.uk, a website that highlights the support available from the established veterinary care organisations and from outside the profession. This article, aimed at those who may be troubled by feelings of depression, as well as their friends, colleagues and relatives, sets out to provide a better understanding of depression, and of what can be done to help.
