Mental Health 4 Ag – Your time can make a big difference!
Being online, you can participate from your own home in interactive workshops that involve a range of activities such as virtual brainstorming, ranking of ideas and group discussion. Just a couple of hours of your time will make a huge difference to what we know and might just help save someone’s life in your community.
Not being able to access mental health services that understand farming life and work is one of the biggest barriers farmers face when experiencing depression. We want to change this by training members of farming communities to help their peers experiencing depression.
The best people to help create this service are people from farming communities who understand and have walked in their shoes.
