Who helps the healer?

Support4Support was created by the VIN Foundation to help veterinary support staff going through challenging times. Modeled from VIN Foundation's veterinary support group Vets4Vets; Support4Support is a group of veterinary technicians and support staff that are dedicated to providing confidential outreach and support for their peers.

The support group holds bi-weekly meetings online and has a closed Facebook group that members can post to 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Issues that have been discussed during meetings include difficulties with bosses, bullying, substance abuse, management challenges in the clinic, aging out of the profession, burnout, and how to leave your job at the clinic when you are clocked out. Support4Support also offers one-on-one remote mentoring with mentors that have been through similar experiences.

Sometimes just having the opportunity to talk with other people who have faced similar challenges can be helpful. At Support4Support, we are here and we are listening.

If you are in need of support, please contact Charlotte Waack, Support4Support leader at Charlotte@vspn.org.
