  • 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.
