Since 2014, NOMV has been pioneering online peer-to-peer support and mentorship. Over 25,000 veterinarians, support staff, and veterinary students from around the globe are members of NOMV’s online peer-to-peer support groups, making us the largest veterinary support forum in the world.
Dr. Nicole McArthur created the NOMV Facebook group in October 2014 following the death by suicide of the world-renowned veterinarian, Dr. Sophia Yin. News reports in the days that followed Dr. Yin’s passing brought into stark focus the alarming rates of suicide in the veterinary profession. In that moment, many came to realize that veterinary medicine can be very isolating and that so many veterinary professionals around the world are struggling with the day-to-day realities of practice.
From that grassroots beginning, NOMV has grown into a massive peer-to-peer network providing support for veterinary professionals around the world. In 2017, NOMV became a 501(c)3 charity, allowing the organization to grow its programing to include wellness education and financial support for its members. Today NOMV is expanding rapidly to become a leader in veterinary wellness and mental health resources.
Not One More Vet (NOMV) is focused on wellbeing, mental health, and crisis intervention in the veterinary community.
