“Take an honest moment of self reflection. It’s easy to get into a victim narrative when you’re struggling…it’s important to take a step back and ask why…Evaluate what is in your control and what isn’t…because you matter.”
As a passionate speaker about mental health, Dr. Carrie Jurney brings this energy and humour to what otherwise can be a rather challenging and somber topic. Because of her work as the Director of Forum Moderators for the board of Not One More Vet, she’s sought extensive continuing education in crisis counselling and suicide prevention. She brings this knowledge, and her experience doing peer to peer interventions with members of our group, to her lectures.
When Dr. Jurney is not managing the day to day activities of the NOMV forum, she is a veterinary neurologist, sculptor, wife to Chris and zoo keeper of three rambunctious cats.
