Coping with the Pressures of Farming

‚ÄėCoping with the Pressures of Farming‚Äô was launched at the National Ploughing Championships 2017 by Mental Health Ireland and Teagasc.¬† Staying well mentally is just as important as staying well physically.¬† Dealing with stress and strain, and the ups and downs of life, are part and parcel of daily living.¬† However, sometimes situations can lead to feelings of being unable to cope.¬† On such occasions, being able to reach out to someone to talk to and get advice from can make all the difference to sorting out the problem.¬† This publication has been researched and collated to address the many and varied issues that contribute to stress when not properly handled.¬† Part 1 addresses the essential requirement to manage farming effectively and efficiently.¬† Part 2 looks at mental health and wellbeing, with an emphasis on the more common mental health issues that can impact on day-to-day living.¬† To access a copy of this booklet, visit: www.mentalhealthireland.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Coping-with-the-pressures-of-farming-1.pdf
