Mental health is a critical aspect of overall well-being, DWA recognises that good mental health will lead to a resilient student who will go on to be a resilient RVN. Time is taken to support self-care, which is achieved by a variety of methods including resilience building, self-care studies, wellbeing rounds and attendance of Fizz, our chief wellbeing officer (CWO).
Fizz is a registered Pets as Therapy (PAT) dog and she attends DWA to offer support to all learners- see her photo above. All the team are mental health first aid trained and will support you if necessary. Don't be afraid to reach out for help if you're struggling with your mental health.
