Mental Health and Wellbeing on the Land

Thankful4Farmers is committed to health and wellness of communities in regional and rural Australia which is why we were proud to provide the grant funding to the Royal Flying Doctors Service Queensland Section to develop and distribute the resource ‘Mental Health and Wellbeing on the Land'.

"This book has been written specifically to support the mental health and wellbeing of people living and working on the land. They can learn about coping with stress, keeping relationships healthy and dealing with difficult times on the land, as well as navigating serious mental health concerns."

Meredith Staib CEO, RFDS (Queensland Section)

“I’ve seen first-hand the impact that mental health challenges have had on friends and many farmers who are struggling with the stress of farming today. Just when we think we are in for a bumper season we are hit with bad weather and the whole season is a write-off. We invest time and money into the crop and just like that it’s gone and there is nothing we can do about it. It takes its toll on our health and we are told as farmers we are resilient and tough. But the industry needs to change the narrative and recognise that it is ok not to be ok so people can ask for help when they need it. This new book will help make us more aware and recognise when and how we can seek help.”  

Carl Walker, Farmer President, Bowen Gumlu Growers Association
