The Mind Matters Initiative recognises how important it is to provide veterinary professionals with the tools they need to look after their mental health.

In addition to taking part at conferences and congresses and giving talks at a variety of veterinary organisations, our training sessions form a vital part of our ‘protect’ workstream.

This year, we are delighted to be expanding our training programme and are working with a range of training providers to ensure we continue to deliver relevant sessions of the highest standard. More information about our various training sessions can be found below.

If you would like a Mind Matters speaker at one of your events, please contact us on or 020 7050 1248.
