Zoetis and Beyond Blue continue to support mental health in rural communities and our veterinarians
Leading Animal Health company Zoetis continues to support the mental health challenges faced by people in rural Australia through its crucial partnership with Beyond Blue, committing to raise up to $100,000 to support the charity in 2019.
Tragically, suicide rates of people in remote areas are double that in our major cities.1 Zoetis, who works closely with rural Australia through interactions with the country’s farmers, agricultural stores, veterinarians and their families, has helped raise $300,000 in the past three years by donating $5 from each sale of the company’s livestock, pig and poultry vaccines and drenches. The money raised goes directly to Beyond Blue’s Support Service to continue to help more people in rural communities than anywhere else in Australia.
“Zoetis is proud to once again be supporting Beyond Blue and the important work they do,” says Lance Williams, Zoetis Vice President, Australia and New Zealand. “Together we’ve made strong progress in providing tangible contributions to raise awareness of mental health challenges and help fund much needed services that directly assist rural families. We are passionate about the importance of good mental wellbeing and look forward to helping again this year.”
Whilst it’s well-known our farmers can be vulnerable to mental health challenges due to stressful weather associated events and financial worries, the impact on the wider community in these areas is little known - from farmers and their families, to re-sellers, regional businesses, and much of the community as the effects trickle through the local economy.
Unfortunately the facts show that veterinarians experience suicide at four times the rate of the general population.2
Whilst vets are often seen as the heroes of their community for treating and saving the lives of some of our most treasured family members, it can often be at significant cost to their mental health.
Day in day out, vets undergo a great deal of stress, not only caring for sick animals, but compassionately and knowledgeably working with the owners to provide the best care and treatment.
Supporting the mental wellbeing of our vet community is a focus for Zoetis, with Zoetis Vice President for Australia and NZ Mr Lance Williams recently stating that “We are very passionate about improving mental health and are proud to partner with Beyond Blue to tackle these very real issues affecting our vets, who suffer as a result of supporting our community.”
The Beyond Blue Support Service offers free contact with counsellors by phone, webchat or email at an approximate cost of $48 per contact, with Zoetis’s donation helping over 2,000 people get the support they need through the Beyond Blue service.
Vet practices can support the Zoetis initiative from July 15 to October 31 2019, with $5 from the sale of every Zoetis product sold being donated to Beyond Blue, up to $100,000.
The Australian Veterinary Association also provides resources and support that veterinarians need for prosperous, healthy careers. Through wellness initiatives such as their 24-hour counselling service, graduate mentoring program, and Mental Health First Aid training, they aim to provide a safety net for those in need.

Zoetis has teamed up with Beyond Blue to provide resources to help people in Australia manage their mental health.
We all have good days and bad days. Then there are those days when something isn't quite right, you've got something on your mind, you’re having trouble sleeping, or things just seem too much. Some people experience these feelings intensely, for long periods of time (weeks, months or even years) - it's important to remember that support is available, and things can get better.
