A public health approach.

Get trained in providing effective peer-based support.

Help people through emotional crises.

Veterinary specific although all are welcome.

The goals of this ECPR event are to:

1) Provide training for veterinarians to help others through emotional crises with increased efficacy and without self-harm. 

2) Develop a group of DVM’s who, having been trained in ECPR, are willing and prepared to reduce stigma about mental illness in the profession by telling “their own stories” of adversity and healing.
