Resource: Scottish Young Farmers Mental Health Support via their Website

MWH Admin Team Resource

The Young Farmers website for Scottish young farmers has a section around mental health. It is important to highlight the need for mental health support, especially as we ease out of lockdown and life begins to change again for us all. Great to see there is help for this group of young folk in our rural communities. Here is a snippet, to find out more visit their website….

Wellbeing

You’re not alone. We’re here to help.
We understand as an association that it’s unrealistic to assume that our members feel positive about rural life, all of the time.

Young Farmers as a network always strive for their members to feel comfortable in voicing their opinions however when the conversation turns to mental health, it often strikes individuals as being too personal to discuss.

It’s about looking out for each other and being there to listen…  But equally, feeling able to protect our own personal mental well-being;

  •  having the access to services and information
  •  being aware of the continual work within the Agricultural sector and across Scotland.

They have collated the latest information and advice about looking after mental health and highlight the factors contributing to rural isolation.
