Farmer and crofter wellbeing research

Are you a farmer or a crofter? We want to hear from you!

We are looking for research participants to investigate different aspects of wellbeing in farming and crofting communities.

The survey, supported by Scotland's Rural College (SRUC), the National Mental Health Forum (run by Support in Mind Scotland), RHASS and the Scottish Rural Network, aims to provide insights to emulate Farmstrong, a wellbeing programme that has proven successful in New Zealand which helps farmers to “live well, to farm well”. 

The initiative is designed by farmers for farmers, to provide the resources and proven tools that you might need to manage your own wellbeing when faced with challenges that are often hard to predict, or control.

Commenting on the survey, Kate Lamont from SRUC said: The survey has been designed by farmers, for farmers. You can answer on your phone, tablet, computer or you can get a paper copy. It would be really good to hear how you cope and what you think would help others.”
