Over half of Canada’s farmers report they suffer from anxiety—almost 10 times higher than Canada’s labour market. Twenty-five percent of farmers reported experiencing suicidal thoughts in the past year.

There are unique issues facing the agricultural industry, we help farmers and veterinarians by providing agricultural-informed therapists and training for therapists with an interest in practicing within the agricultural community.

Look to us to provide agricultural-informed therapists who understand the unique issues you face. Our various workshops are geared for therapists and explore the factors facing today’s farmers. We share how to adapt mindfulness and self-compassion strategies in your work with farmers, farm families, and rural veterinarians. 

We’ve also developed the Agriculture Informed Therapy (AIT) program to introduce the unique needs of farmers and veterinarians to therapists and students who may work with farmers/veterinarians in their practice. The course is intended to teach therapists how to effectively build and maintain a therapeutic alliance. Established cultural competency is imperative in ensuring farmers and their families receive appropriate services when they are sought out.

Let us introduce you to Desaray! We are thrilled to have her join the NFMHA Team as one of our Co-Directors of Student Engagement. Her role is to connect with students interested in becoming Ag Informed Therapists. Let’s give her a warm welcome! @desskretting #nfmha #nationalfarmermentalhealthalliance #aginformedtherapy #aginformedtherapist #agmentalhealth #farmermentalhealth #ruralmentalhealth #socialworkersofinstagram #psychotherapistsofinstagram #counsellorsofinstagram #socialworkers #counsellorsconnect ...

🌍Today is Global Wellness Day!🌍 We challenge you to spend time outside today. 🌳 Perhaps life on the farm during planting season means that you are outside already. So we challenge you to look past the machinery and the problem solving that comes in this season of life. Take a moment to allow the sun to kiss your face, deeply breathe in the outdoor air and allow the sounds of nature to sing a song to you. 🐦Maybe you are able to choose to take a few hours away from the realities of farm life and walk through a forest, a beautiful park or garden. 🌻Our relationship with nature – how much we notice, how we think about and appreciate our natural surroundings – is important in supporting good mental health.Spending time in nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.So...put down your phone and get to it. 😉#GlobalWellnessDay #MagentaNature #nfmha #nationalfarmermentalhealthalliance #farmermentalhealth 👨‍🌾👩‍🌾#agmentalhealth #ruralmentalhealth #ranchermentalhealth🐄 #agmentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #mentalhealthmatters #farmermentalhealthmatters #ruralmentalhealthmatters #farmermentalhealth #ruralmentalhealth 🚜 ...
