90% of famers believe that ‘Pride’ would prevent farmers from opening up about mental health*
Greenway Training attended an insightful workshop organised by the NFU, aimed to equip those working with farmers on a regular basis with essential knowledge and practical skills to help them:
• Improve their general awareness of stress and mental wellbeing and understanding of factors that influence this;
• Learn how to recognise the signs in oneself or others who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing;
• Develop the ability to listen and the confidence to engage supportively with somebody experiencing difficulty;
• Improve their knowledge of sources of help available to the farming community and how to signpost people towards these.
Greenway Training will be shortly launching a programme of wellbeing workshops for farmers and rural professionals in Wiltshire. For more information or to register your interest please email Charlotte Boole email@example.com
