PROGRAM GOALS

Raise mental health awareness by coordinating introductory mental health training sessions for Farmers using local providers or other Regional Health Authorities. 

Support agriculturally-informed care and develop and maintain an inventory of in-province and national mental health and wellness safety programs and resources.

Deliver business management support and risk preparedness resources by connecting with local safety groups and consultants to evaluate working partnerships and collaborations.

Advocate for farmer-specific support services by creating and delivering farm safety and mental health and wellness events throughout the year and facilitating information sharing.

Our aim is to support the development of a Mental Health, Wellness & Safety Program for Newfoundland and Labrador Farmers and those involved in the agriculture sector, by first organizing and delivering information sessions to farmers on mental health awareness and well-being. This will also include directly providing resources tailored to address the unique needs, challenges and stressors faced by those working in or alongside the agricultural industry in our province. This programming will add value to the NL Federation of Agriculture in crucial areas of mental health, wellness and farm safety.
