Veterinary Behavioural Health Issues Associated with Disaster Response

Vroegindewey, G. and Kertis, K. (2021). Veterinary Behavioural Health Issues Associated with Disaster Response. Australian Journal of Emergency Management. 36(3).
The authors conducted an international survey to understand the behavioral health of veterinary disaster responders and found that more than 50% reported behavioral health issues (e.g., sleep challenges, anxiety, difficulty with interpersonal relationships, nightmares, and suicidal ideation) in the initial six months after a disaster. The authors emphasize the need for standards, additional training, and research to better understand and mitigate the negative impact of disasters on veterinarians.
