Lake Road Vet Health And Wellness Day
Last Thursday we had an amazing day as we looked to our mental health. The clinic ran on a skeleton staff for the day and we moved ourselves to the International Hotel for the day.
With the great pressures on the mental health of veterinary staff the day focused on strategies to manage stress and how staff can be supported.
The day started with an introduction to yoga and meditation by Bec Layton. We then moved on to a session with Steve Barker from ‘I am Enough’ coaching who explained what stress is, why its important and gave us some some exercises to use to manage stress.
Later in the day we used in house trainers to look at financial health, drug abuse, preventive health and mental health support.
It was a long day but feedback from staff was positive and we are looking forward to another Wellness Day in 6 months time.
