Mental Health in the Farming Community

My wife was watching Country File at the weekend when they discussed mental health. This naturally peaked my curiosity and I thought I would do a little more reading. Whilst there are no statistics for the Isle of Man it is clear that farmers are working under huge pressures. We saw that all too clearly with the buy-out of Shoprite. There is also a paucity of information in the UK about farmers, but the following Parliamentary report overs some insights in to the problems and pressures faced. https://committees.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/43055/pdf/

Last year Energy FM commissioned documentary has explored the perilous state of agriculture in the Isle of Man and how the industry could collapse completely if Government policies are not supportive. You can find the Energy FM article and documentary here: https://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_773972.html We have a vibrant faming community on the Island and it is vital their needs are met.
