According to the Australian Veterinary Association, "a number of studies have identified that veterinarians appear to be at a significantly higher risk of suicide than the general population.

While other health care professionals such as doctors, pharmacists, dentists and nurses are around twice as likely to commit suicide than the general population, veterinarians have been shown to be up to four times more likely to fall victim to suicide."
