Personal resilience in the farming community is a widely recognised process of coping with stress and bouncing back – or ‘bouncing forward – from difficult situations. It is important to recognise that it is normal to experience difficult times – it’s OK to talk and admit if you need help. Thankfully there is accessible help and support readily available.
FarmWell strives to be proactive in building resilience before it is needed, as well as helping to support you during unexpected situations or times of need. This section on personal resilience will provide supportive links, advice and help, helping you to look after your personal resilience and wellbeing, whilst maintaining a safe and healthy working environment.
