Support Services for Farmers
Mental Health Ireland
Mental Health Ireland along with Teagasc and the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) have partnered to co-host and co-deliver information and resources to you.
Their aim is to support you and your family ‘farm’ your way through the challenges being posed by Covid-19. They will look at some practical evidence-based ways to support personal and business resilience.
In This Together
Here you will find lots of advice and tips on how you can look after your mental wellbeing, stay active and stay connected.
In This Together draws together a huge range of activities that you can pursue in your home or your locality, by yourself or with family members or with friends online. There are ideas and activities for people of all ages. Some people might find this time more worrying than others and may need some extra support on the phone or online.
Following the HSE [Health Service Executive] mental health guidelines is important by doing such things as keeping informed about the crisis and maintaining healthy routines around diet, exercise, sleep, and alcohol consumption.
Keep in contact with family and friends – and professional services where necessary – online and support the young and old.
Continue to practice the guidelines around social distancing and hand washing.
