Farming is not like other jobs.  It’s physically hard, can be unpredictable, and comes with its own set of factors that can lead to stress.  Farmers often put other things first - like looking after stock, land and equipment.  But they can overlook the stress that comes with managing all of these things.  FarmInMind is an initiative to help Northern Irish farmers to look after themselves better.  This new website is designed to help farmers to identify the sources and levels of stress in their daily life, and to direct them towards the help and support that they need.  Check it out at:
