Accessing mental health support

Australian farmers are tough and can endure anything that life or the wild Aussie weather throws at them… but not on their own.

Most farmers are lucky enough to have a great support system in the form of family and friends surrounding them when times get tough.

However, sometimes confiding in a stranger who is also a counselling professional can make a dark day a little brighter.
