Our primary goal is to support rural people heal and recover; returning to farming and family sooner rather than later
Mental health was seen by those experiencing mental illness as placing a burden on family and friends. Most still don’t reach out due to shame or the fear of being treated unfairly - yet half of the NZ population experiences mental illness at some time in their lives.
Rural Support Trust Facilitators are trained to recognise signs of dis-Stress and/or Stress and triage rural people with anxiety and/or depression in a caring, confidential and compassionate manner.
Our other goal is to support development of Individual and Community resilience with education.
Free community training is delivered through a Good Yarn Mental Health workshop so get in touch with your local Trust.
