Wellbeing hub

Home » For veterinary professionals » Wellbeing hub


The NZVA is committed  to providing  members with wellbeing support.

The Wellbeing Hub is a recently added member benefit and provides access to valuable resources to help veterinarians, veterinary technicians, nurses and support staff remain healthy and well both as individuals as part of the wider veterinary team. It also provides support to those who are struggling with stress, anxiety or burnout.

The Hub will  be updated on a regular basis  as more useful resources are created or identified and added to the collection.

For more information on veterinary wellbeing and how to get help please visit our Veterinary wellbeing page.


Hauora is the Maori view of health and wellbeing. It recognises that wellbeing is comprised of four different areas. To be well overall, all four of these spheres must be looked after.

Taha hinengaro (mental and emotional wellbeing)

The ability to understand your own thoughts and feelings and express them.

Taha whānau (social wellbeing)

Social connections and relationships.

Taha tinana (physical wellbeing)

Caring for the health of the body.

Taha wairua (spiritual wellbeing)

The values that each person lives by.

The NZVA Wellbeing hub resources are divided into these categories so that you can care for yourself as a whole. Additional categories specific to workplace wellness and COVID-19 specific resources are also provided.

We are keen to hear from you if you have any feedback about the Wellbeing Hub or have any resources you would like to contribute to support the wellbeing of the members of the New Zealand veterinary profession.

Please email any feedback to vetlearn@vets.org.nz.
