Championing Rural Mental Health

Championing Rural Mental Health

Craig ‘Wiggy’ Wiggins talks about mental health in shifting New Zealand rural community landscapes.

Farmers are facing huge pressure with escalating debts, extreme weather events and political changes relating to environment and climate policies resulting in significant mental health impacts and an increased risk of suicide.

‘Wiggy’ talks to  Hamish Williams and psychotherapist Kyle MacDonald about raising awareness around farmers' mental health and the need for compassion and empathy in the rural sector.
