Mental Health Tips for Farming People

The Pig Crisis


Read: People from the world of agriculture share their mental health advice​

“Farming can be quite isolating, so knowing there’s support available from people who are understanding of those specific pressures is reassuring to know."
Rebecca Horsington
County Organiser, Somerset Young Farmers Club
“Social interaction has really been lost during the pandemic and people have become more isolated. Therefore, we really need to be mindful that we connect with farmers. Every farmer counts.”
Stella Owen
NFU Cymru County Adviser
"In our industry we always face enormous challenges. Around markets, the weather, people, resourcing, fertiliser costs, energy costs, logistics – all these things have an impact. So without doubt there are challenges around mental health, compounded by long working hours and rural isolation. We must collectively make sure the right support is available.”
Phillip Wynn
Worshipful Company of Farmers
"It’s reassuring to know there’s a safe space for farmers to visit. Anyone struggling with wellbeing issues will find a supportive community – so you need never feel alone.”
Katie Davies
Wales YFC Chairman
“Speaking from personal experience there’s a lot to be gained from seeking help from professionals who understand the way you feel.”

Chief Executive, OF&G
“We need farmers to share their stories to normalise the idea of reaching out for support.”
Matt Lobey
Professor, University of Exeter
