Our Training

Mental health and wellbeing training

We’re reaching out to the farming community by offering fully funded Mental Health and Wellbeing Workshops, run in partnership with Herefordshire Mind.

Our workshops will provide individuals with the skills to identify warning signs and signals, using the tools provided to support those with poor mental health.

  • Mental health in agriculture
  • Impacts of mental health
  • Barriers and stigma
  • Suicide and self-harm
  • Stressors and warning signs
  • Strategies to manage your emotions
  • Case studies and using the training going forward in different situations

Can you help us help farmers?

Farmers are proud people and very often the last people to ask for support.

If your business takes you to farmers – or if you live in and around farmers - we want to hear from you. We will fund specialist training to help you look out for the warning signs of anxiety and depression. Help us support mental wellbeing in farming.

"I learnt a lot from the training. Particularly learning about warning signs and stressors and how to open a conversation about someone’s mental health. It made me more aware of how high the suicide rate is in farming and how I can help."
