The VVMA has partnered with McLaughlin Young and is proud to provide a Member Assistance Program (MAP)
 that offers support and resources you need to help address personal or work-related challenges and concerns.

This service is confidential and FREE for VVMA veterinarians and their household family members!

Please note: "Member" = VVMA Member
The MAP does not extend to any other employees in your practice.

For those members who may not be comfortable reaching out to the MAP via phone, click here for the form members can complete to request an appointment.
The completed form comes to our Intake Clinical team who in turn will reach out to the member to offer assistance.
