Betterment of Mental Health
EVERY DAY, APPROXIMATELY 130 AMERICANS DIE BY SUICIDE, RESULTING IN THE 10TH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN
THE UNITED STATES.
THAT’S ONE DEATH BY SUICIDE EVERY 11 MINUTES. ONE IN SIX VETERINARIANS HAVE CONTEMPLATED SUICIDE.
PAISLEY PAWS PROMOTES
SELF-CARE THROUGH FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR A VARIETY OF WELLNESS SERVICES.
Paisley Paws recognizes that there is a mental health crisis, exacerbated by financial struggles, a poor work-life balance, compassion fatigue, depression and other factors within the veterinary profession that must be addressed.
Veterinarians have the highest suicide rate of all professions-- 3.5 times higher than the general public. These alarming statistics cannot be ignored.
Through the Paisley Paws Betterment of Mental Health Fund , we promote self-care through financial assistance for wellness services, including crisis aid, telehealth counseling, fitness memberships and more. Our goal is to lend a paw to services that Save a Life and Give Life to veterinarians so that they may continue to practice at their full potential.
