Bringing mental health to Canadian farmers & the ag community.

WELCOME TO IN THE KNOW

A mental health literacy workshop for Farmers and the ag community.

In the Know is a mental health literacy program designed specifically for farmers, their families and those who are involved and/or support the agriculture sector. 

Through this free, four-hour workshop, participants will cover the topics of stress, depression, anxiety, substance use and how to start a conversation around mental well-being. The workshops are facilitated by mental health professionals using ‘real-life’ examples from agriculture.

IN THE KNOW IS MORE THAN A JUST A PRESENTATION.

This award-winning program has been tested and proven to increase awareness of mental health and help seeking in participants. In the Know is based off and similar to Mental Health First Aid program, but it’s been tailored to farmers and uses real life farm examples. It frames mental health in an easy to understand, relevant way that farmers can relate to.

Here’s what you’ll learn

  • Understand stress, anxiety, depression, acute trauma, suicide, and substance abuse and how they may affect you and your family.

  • Recognize signs and symptoms of mental distress and how they may show up in your day-to-day operations.

  • Learn approaches for engaging in safe conversations about mental health with someone who may be struggling.

  • Find the appropriate people and/or organizations that can provide help/support/resources for someone who may be struggling.
