Farmer Wellness Initiative – Let’s Break the Silence Together
Farming demands bravery and resiliency, but unfortunately it is often difficult admitting our challenges and reaching out for help. Flos Agricultural Society is proud to support the Agricultural Wellness Initiative and will be hosting a local ‘In the Know‘ event for our rural community on Saturday, November 18th from 10 am – 3 pm at the Lion’s Club 1979 Flos Road 7 West, Elmvale. Refreshments & Lunch are provided.
In the Know
A mental health literacy workshop for farmers and the agricultural community.
In the Know is a mental health literacy program designed specifically for farmers, their families and those who are involved and/or support the agriculture sector. Through this free, four-hour workshop, participants will cover the topics of stress, depression, anxiety, substance use and how to start a conversation around mental well-being. The workshops are facilitated by one of CMHA’s mental health professionals using ‘real-life’ examples from agriculture. https://agriculturewellnessontario.ca/in-the-know/
