Coping with the Pressures of Farming
Coping with the Pressures of Farming workshops are open to farmers, farm family members and farm employees. This awareness training will provide practical guidance to farmers and farm families dealing with the pressures of farming.
This course is specifically tailored for the farming sector and covers a range of wellbeing issues. Workshops are currently being delivered through online webinars and last for around 90 minutes.
Who are the workshops for?
Farmers and growers, members of the farm family and employees.
The workshops aim to create a general awareness of:
- What causes stress and mental wellbeing issues within the farm family;
- The signs in oneself or others who may be struggling with their mental wellbeing;
- How to listen and be more confident to engage supportively with somebody experiencing difficulty;
- The sources of help available to the farming community and how to signpost people towards these;
Trainees will also be provided with the booklet ‘Coping with the Pressures of Farming’ published by Rural Support and Health and Safety Executive NI. This is a valuable resource of information.
