Farming organisations have been praised in the Senedd Chamber by local Member Paul Davies for their work to support farmers with mental health conditions, ahead of World Mental Health Day on the 10th October. Mr Davies explained that there are charities and organisations working to support the agricultural sector and highlighted the impact of issues like Bovine TB on farmers’ mental health and wellbeing.
Mr Davies said, “Ahead of World Mental Health Day, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank those working in our farming organisations for the support their offer the rural community. Farming can often be a lonely, isolating job and I know that issues like Bovine TB continue to have a distressing impact on farming families.”
“These organisations are a lifeline to some farmers in Pembrokeshire and we must never underestimate their importance to the sector.”
“I called on the Welsh Government to work with these organisations and ensure that they can continue to provide these valuable services for years to come.”
