The farming industry is ‘breaking barriers' when it comes to tackling mental health, with the issue now being freely discussed, something which would have been a rarity even a couple of years ago.
John Scott, chair of Farmstrong Scotland, told visitors to Agriconnect's Future Farming Expo Scotland this week that he believed the issue was much more freely discussed now, while Carol McLaren, chief executive of RSABI, added that demand for its services had grown.
