See what you can do to help our farmers' mental health, an on-going issue in our society.
Mental health is an on-going issue in our society. Farmers, dealing where the vagaries of weather and markets, and working in isolation, are at greater risk. Every farmer knows someone who has taken their life.
To better support our farming community, we need a better understanding of what people on farms are thinking. The Ripple Effect is an online intervention designed by the National Centre For Farmer Health a to investigate and support farmers who have are been touched by suicide or a struggling with mental health.
To help, visit https://therippleeffect.com.au/about-us/ and complete the on-line, anonymous survey. The survey results will enable planners, researchers and government to fully realise the extent of the problem.
