Irish farming is going through a period of great change and transformation and this can bring uncertainty and additional stress for people in rural areas. Isolation and loneliness can exacerbate mental health concerns and make some problems seem insurmountable. By reaching out and maintaining contact with friends, neighbours and advisors we can reduce that sense of isolation and share the burden. Having access to good quality and trustworthy information can make all the difference when making decisions and considering options.
