THREE years ago Northern Ireland dairy farmer Adam Watson was not in a good place as stress from falling milk prices and his forthcoming wedding started to affect his mental health.

Little did Adam know at that stage those pressures would boil over and push him to a point where he seriously considered taking his own life.

Adam, 38, is now in a much better place happily married to Laura and enjoying being a father to the couple’s seven month old son, little Abel.
