The Resilience Project
Thursday, November 22
The drought is a major source of stress and anxiety for farmers.
It not only has a devastating impact on their livelihood and mental health but has flow-on impacts to family wellbeing and community vibrancy.
Farmers in regional and remote NSW, including large regional centres such as Tamworth, have been severely impacted by drought affecting their mental health. Remoteness and isolation can also mean people have poor access or limited engagement with social networks that are essential for building resilience.
A community session will be held at Capitol Theatre Tamworth on November 22 at 6pm as part of a joint initiative between Australian Unity and The Resilience Project to inspire attendees to be proactive and take care of their mental health and wellbeing.
Australian Unity is committed to building and promoting positive mental health strategies in our regional communities. Australian Unity believes prevention is just as important as treatment in mental health, and that resources are best directed at targeted preventative measures.
The Resilience Project presenter and former AFL footballer Martin Heppell will lead the session, which is focused around three key themes – gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.
