Farming and Better Mental Health film
A new short film featuring two farmers openly discussing their experiences of mental ill-health and how seeking support helped them. In the short film – called ‘Farming and Better Mental Health’ and directed by Berno Vierbergen – former dairy and sheep farmer and FCN volunteer Nick Viney talks candidly to farmer Trevor Cligg from Pipplepen Farm in Dorset about their experiences of mental ill-health and the support they received.
Nick said: “We hope the short film encourages anyone in the farming community experiencing mental ill-health or dealing with other pressures on the farm to seek help early, talk about it and not be ashamed of how they’re feeling.”
