“Our future profession has a suicide rate 4x that of the national average, with one veterinarian taking their own life every 12 weeks”

A group of third and fourth-year veterinary medicine and animal science students have shed their clothes for charity.

The year’s University of Sydney’s School of Veterinary Science nude calendar will support Black Dog Institute, a charity that is dedicated to “understanding, preventing and treating mental illness”.

The calendar – which was created over one decade ago – has generated over €90,000 for charities.

In a post on a Facebook page entitled Vets Bare in Mind, a spokesperson said: “DID YOU KNOW veterinarians are at an increased risk of suffering from mental health problems?”

Statistics

“Our future profession has a suicide rate 4x that of the national average, with one veterinarian taking their own life every 12 weeks. This is a very scary statistic, one that needs to change.”

“To do our bit, the Nude Calendar Committee 2020 has decided to donate all profits made from the sale of the calendar to the Black Dog Institute.”

“To score 16 tasteful ‘nude’ images featuring future veterinarians and animal scientists along with cute animals, tick off your Christmas shopping early and acquire a fully function hanging wall calendar for 2020 WHILST contributing to an amazing cause and adding to your good karma.”

The students said they are producing this calendar to support not only those in the agricultural industry, but “all Australians who are struggling with their mental health”.
