As a result of numerous roundtable discussions and other engagements with farmers about their mental health concerns, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) has partnered with CMHA Ontario, the Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) and other mental health and farming sector experts to provide mental health initiatives specialized to support those in the agriculture sector.
The farming community is incredibly resilient and with our partners, we will continue to provide additional supports so that farmers can be at their best.
