Cereals Support is a free service that offers advice and assistance for arable farmers during this trying time. It will consist of a monthly webinar series, focusing on one specific theme around farming, ie finance, legal, marketing, mental health, equipment and agronomy sectors.

MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

RABI

The Cereals team will be working with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), farming's oldest and largest charity – as well as the longstanding official charity partner of the event – on the first project of Cereals Support, which is associated with mental health. RABI has launched a new online wellbeing platform on Monday 19 October, in partnership with a specialist online mental health provider. Two new websites, (one targeting younger members of the farming community aged 11-17 and a separate adult platform) will deliver farmer-friendly content that addresses industry-specific challenges and one-to-one counselling support via a team of qualified professionals. The service is free to use and confidential.
“We are very excited to be launching our new online wellbeing platform which we hope will prove a valuable new support service for the farming community, who are facing such challenging and uncertain times, Thank you to Comexposium and Cereals for your continued and much valued support,” says Suzy Deeley, corporate partnership manager at RABI.

It’s easy to overlook one of your most important assets, your own mental wellbeing.

Farming can be a 24/7 business and many in the industry work long hours in isolation in remote, rural areas. That’s why strong support networks are vital for maintaining good mental health, especially during stressful times. Our caseworkers are available and willing to talk through problems and concerns in complete confidence, without judgement. They are trained in suicide awareness and mental health first-aid and provide a human, sympathetic and caring link to the charity.

It is vital that anyone suffering from mental health issues seeks professional help. RAVI work closely with many other organisations and agencies to ensure support is provided where it is needed, as quickly and efficiently as possible.
