Health and wellbeing is so important but with life being such a rush all the time, we often don’t stop and think about ourselves.  NFUS recognises there is a lot of stress and pressure within the industry and often a stigma associated with talking about your feelings, especially amongst men.  If you are looking for help/support for yourself or someone else here are some of the organisations that can offer help or support.  Click on a logo.

 

NFU Scotland would like to thank SAYFC Young Farmers for its support in helping us raise awareness around mental health issues.  SAYFC has gathered some inspirational stories from its members, who talk through their journey when battling an illness, which you can watch at: https://www.sayfc.org/i-am-not-alone-sayfc-stories/
