As promised, and in case you missed it, here is the the joint LFA and LFSA seminar we held February 27, 2019.
The Lambton Federation of Agriculture recognizes that mental health is an issue for many, and can be a difficult topic to approach. Recently, a seminar was sponsored jointly by LFA and Lambton Farm Safety. Take a moment and view the video below.
In late February, the Lambton Farm Safety Association co-hosted a seminar on mental health and farming, a topic of growing concern for those in rural Ontario. People, especially youth, are leaving small towns for bigger cities. Rural populations are getting smaller, older, and more spread out. Banks and other industries are closing their doors in farm country.
