Mental health events for farmers, farm managers and staff

February 23, 2021

Farm Management Canada (FMC) is hosting a two-part workshop on mental health and agriculture. The first part is coming up in February. Sign up for both both sessions for free below:

Part 1: Creating Healthy Workplaces
Thursday, Feb. 25
1 to 2:30 p.m. EST

Join FMC and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) for a facilitated discussion on how to recognize, assess, control and evaluate your current farm management plan from a healthy workplace perspective.

Experience examples of policies, programs and tools that can help you build a mentally healthy work environment and learn how to apply these strategies in your existing farm business management plan.

Part 2: Growing Your Plan
Thursday, March 25
1 to 2:30 p.m. EST

As a follow up to Part 1, we discover what experiences you had in applying the RACE (recognize, assess, control and evaluate) model for psychological health, safety and well-being, in your farm management plans. Tools, resources, interactive group work, exercises, as well as your own experience and knowledge, will provide valuable insights and learning outcomes for all participants.
