Managing mental health is critical

As the drought continues across NSW it is important for farmers to manage their mental health and that was the catalyst for NSW Farmers Wagga Wagga District Branch to organise an information session on Friday morning, September 7, at Wagga Council Meeting Room. Sam Bailey was amongst the speakers, who also included South East Riverina Rural Financial Councillor Kevin McCrum, who is helping farmers apply for government drought support funding; and Merilyn Limbrick, regional co-ordinator for RAHMP - the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health. NSW Premier Glayds Berejiklian also attended briefly to express the state government's on-going support for farmers coping with the drought.
