Trying times for farm families

A resource for farmers seeking support has been launched. The 'Let's Talk' leaflet was produced by the Irish Farmers' Association (IFA) aimed at supporting farmers' mental health.

Margaret Healy, IFA Farm Family Chairwoman said: "Financial pressure, increased regulation, unpredictable working conditions and long hours are the main causes of stress on farms."

Leaflets are available on or from the IFA Farm Family and Social Affairs committee. Tel: 01 4500266.
