Approximately one million people attempt and die by suicide each year due to their helplessness towards their psychological well-being.
Numerous researchers and studies have claimed that Veterinarians too suffer from deteriorating mental health while contributing their share of duty and responsibility to the society.
Our psychological health generally goes ignored but that of veterinarians isn’t considered for “they are not dealing with humans” but definitely living beings. Despite many researches that have conveyed shocking results about the same, “it is discussed or considered lesser”.
In this paper such researches and studies have been reviewed and discussed while providing more suggestions to add onto in order to improve psychological well-being of veterinarians and become aware about the same.
