Human cost of changing ag landscape

The stereotypical image of farmers are of laconic, stoic men, and possibly women, who are better at doing than thinking or feeling.

The reality is of course very different and some of the thinking and feeling on farms and in wider rural communities is depressing.

On The Nation Lisette Reymer reported on the human cost of the changing agricultural landscape, showing how the once ‘golden’ farming industry is being redefined as a mental health minefield. 

It’s a sobering watch.

If you or someone you know needs help, the Rural Support Trust is a very good place to start.
