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.
