If you need urgent help, you should call Lifeline immediately. Lifeline provide 24/7 crisis support and suicide prevention services. 

AVA Counselling Service

The AVA Telephone Counselling Service is not an emergency or crisis line, but a first point of contact. They will discuss your concerns with you – physical and mental – and provide you with advice on what steps to take next. All calls are completely confidential and non-judgemental.

The service is available to AVA members, the vet professionals that work for them (who may not be members) and family members. It is available all day every day on 1300 687 327. The service can also arrange a counsellor to attend veterinary workplaces to help support staff after a traumatic incident.
