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."
