Mental Health Resources for Rural Australians

Managing the Pressures of Farming Handbook Farmers have put this manual together with the help of researchers, rural counsellors and health workers as part of the Farm Family Business Project. It is based on information that farmers in north-west NSW have provided about the impact of common pressures they face in their farm family businesses. The manual aims to point to the things we can do as a business, family and by ourself to manage the pressures in farming.

Agricultural Web Sites

Agricultural websites, Facebook pages and Twitter feeds that may be of use to Burdekin residents.

We are going to be posting web sites that may hopefully be useful for the Agricultural community.  This page created on 25 Jan 2011.

Twitter – a website that according to Wikipedia “offers a social networking and microblogging service, enabling its users to send and read messages called tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the user’s profile page. Tweets are publicly visible by default; however, senders can restrict message delivery to just their followers. Users may subscribe to other users’ tweets—this is known as following and subscribers are known as followers.

There are a number of Australian Agricultural companies that use twitter but do take the time to investigate the #agchatoz feed on twitter. Its a great way to connect with farmers and those that have an interest in Australian agriculture. Highly recommended.

A new twitter feed we also recommend is #RuralMH this feed deals with mental health issues for rural Australia. Follow @RuralMH.
