British Veterinarians Have High Suicide Rate

Very interesting, and surprising, story about why veterinarians in Britain appear to be four times as likely as the general public to commit suicide. The article summarizes the results of a research paper by a PhD student in mental health.

While the research paper deals specifically with British veterinarians, there are apparently elevated suicide rates in this profession in other countries as well.
