Health Projects

The Mental Health and Wellbeing of farmers and farm families has been an ongoing area of research and development for the Centre.

Following the Farm Family Business project funded by the Department of Family and Community Services, the resource "Managing the Pressures of Farming" was produced and continues to be distributed widely.

Another program of work which has been ongoing since the late 1990's is the Agrability network and while there has been limited activity on this since 2009 due to funding limitations, the information and ideas remain highly relevant. This network provided informal peer support to those with severe injury or disabling illness, and sought to find solutions which enable injured farmers to be productive in their farm endeavours.
