Welcome to Keeping on Track.

A podcast series made by the farming community for the
farming community


During this series of Keeping on Track podcasts, some of the issues we will be covering are the main causes of anxiety and stress for people in the farming community, the impact of loneliness and isolation, financial worries, the consequences of working with family, multi-generational and immediate family when it goes wrong, how Government policy and paperwork affects wellbeing, and how public perception and misunderstandings about farming issues can be very damaging to farmers’ mental health. We will look at coping mechanisms, what sort of help is available, how to access it, how to talk about it, how to recognise the signs that normal work stress is becoming a real problem, and what to do when that happens.

“I have lived on a farm and been involved in farming all my life. As anyone working in farming knows, every day brings potential joy and disaster – you never quite know what is going to happen and there are many things you can’t control. This is one of the reasons for the high suicide rate within the farming sector.

A great farming friend of mine died by suicide and many of you listening will have similar experiences. That’s one of the reasons I really wanted to make this podcast series, to shed some light on some of the main issues which cause stress and anxiety for farmers, and to look at practical and effective ways to help”
