Mental Health and Farm Management: A Two-Part Virtual Event Series

  • This event has passed.
We know that the Mental Health of Canadian Farmers is more important than ever right now. After completing our Healthy Minds, Healthy Farms research project last year, we knew we needed to continue the conversation to not only help the Canadian agricultural sector better understand mental health, but equip farm managers with the resources, tools and training to support mental health on the farm for their families, employees and selves.

 

 

On Thursday, February 25 and Thursday, March 25, we are hosting

Part 1: Creating Healthy Workplaces

 

Join Farm Management Canada 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. Consider joining our next session Part 2: Growing Your Plan to share your experiences with others.

 

 

 

Thursday, March 25: 1:00 – 2:30pm ET

Part 2: Growing Your Plan

As a follow up to Part 1: Creating Healthy Workplaces, join Farm Management Canada and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) as 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.

 

 

Farm Management Canada wishes to recognize the Government of Canada’s contribution to this project.
