Farming is a high pressure industry and while the lifestyle is great, at times of great uncertainty it is easy to become overwhelmed. With the challenges of Brexit and now Covid it is more important than ever to understand our own limitations and reach out for help and support when needed.
In this webinar we heard from Doug Avery of Resilient Farmer, as he recaps his own story, discusses his “four pillars” of good mental and emotional health, identifying the issues that hold you back and how to bring yourself back from the brink.
Doug has garnered international recognition for his frank, upfront and honest take on managing mental health within the agricultural industry and we are incredibly fortunate to have him speak to the Farm Advisory Service (FAS).
