You Are Not Alone (YANA)

Help for those in farming who may be affected by stress and depression.

Farming is usually a good way of life but it is a demanding and stressful occupation. So it’s not surprising that many people involved with agriculture can feel isolated, depressed or unable to cope as well as normal.

1 in 5 people in the UK will experience a problem with depression so it is important to know that you, or the person you are concerned about, are not alone.

Those who work in agriculture are often reluctant to seek support for depression, stress or anxiety. However, talking about your problems and seeking appropriate help can make it easier to cope and improve your quality of life.
Remember that depression is an illness not a weakness.
