Cyberbullying and Mental Health Survey Results & Resources

Dear Veterinarians,

Ms. Camille Chan from the Department of Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong has been working on research focusing on mental health issues in the vet profession for the past two years. The preprint of the paper is now available:

The Team at HKU has also provided a list of organisations that veterinarians may use to equip ourselves with skills to communicate with those who are at risk and to encourage professional support.

  • MindHK
    • The link provides a guide to getting help from mental health professionals in Hong Kong. It includes a section on what to expect from them and where to seek help. You may also access "conflict and mental health tips" their "resources" menu, where you can download booklets (ENG/CN) on mental health tips for workplaces.

  • Psychological distress test

  • Zero suicide awareness training

The HKVA is working on different ways to support our profession including a mentorship program and social events. Please feel free to us know if you have any suggestions or any concerns.
