The National Farmer Mental Health Alliance (NFMHA) provides training, education, and resources to improve access to agriculture-informed mental health services.
As psychotherapists with lived ag experience, we understand the unique stresses and challenges that farmers and farm families face. We’ve partnered with the CFFO to offer services that reflect your faith and farm-based values and needs, including:
- Monthly ‘check-in and chats’ to give you the opportunity to ‘drop-in’ for an online conversation with a therapist and other farmers. We will discuss important issues in farming and strategies for how to manage it all.
- Six engaging and informative webinars, such as ‘Building Faith and Resilience’, ‘Coping with Stress’, and ‘Protecting your Farm’s Greatest Asset”. Presented on Zoom, you can attend these workshops from home, the field, or the barn.
- Featured mental health articles in The Steward and posts on the CFFO social media.
Visit www.nfmha.ca to connect with an agriculture-informed therapist and for further mental health resources.
We're launching two programs:
The Check-in & Chat
Jump onto this monthly virtual group chat about mental health with one of our therapists. Each discussion will enable people to listen, learn, share and gain support from the therapist and other farmers.
