“Speaking from personal experience there’s a lot to be gained from seeking help from professionals who understand the way you feel.”

“Mental health is an incredibly important issue, with many people over the course of their lives having to deal with the consequences of poor mental health either personally or with close family members.

The challenges and anxieties that C-19 and Brexit have brought on the farming sector will undoubtedly impacted on people even more. With these uncertainties now appearing to be extending through the Winter and into next year this can only further exacerbate feelings of frustration, isolation and disconnection.

OF&G absolutely support this new service from RABI, especially if it can help our operators, their families, and their extended networks during this incredibly difficult time.

Speaking from personal experience there’s a lot to be gained from seeking help from professionals who understand the way you feel. Having suffered from depression in the past, I know how hard it is to break the cycle when you are in a bad place but people do care and there is help out there. No one should feel like this.”
