Next up…

Manage your time – and your stress!

with Dr. David Posen

It should be no surprise that higher stress levels can be linked to poor time management. Absolutely no one would be surprised to know that farmers are busy people. Do farmers always manage their time in the best, most efficient way possible? No. But nobody does.

Become a Peer Ambassador for Young Farmers when stress hits and they need someone to talk to! In a recent consultation, CYFF members revealed that they are most likely to contact a peer than a professional as their first reach out, in a time of need. Thanks to RBC, CYFF will be hosting two 1st Aid Mental Health Training Workshops through Bridges Health – the workshop is a 2 part series which will be held on January 22nd and February 5th. Morning and Afternoon spots available!

Participants will gain an increased awareness of signs and symptoms of the most common health problems, increased confidence interacting with individuals experiencing a mental health problem or crisis and more, providing participants who take the training with the necessary skill set to identify themselves as someone a young farmer can reach out to, to talk!

Delivered by Bridges Health & Do More Ag.

1 in 4 Canadians will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life. 1 in 8 jobs in Canada are related to Agriculture yet producers are lacking resources related to mental health. Through Do More Ag, the feedback we have received is that people want to understand more about mental health and how they can help. The commitment of a full two day certification course in Mental Health First Aid is not always a feasible option. Our presentation and workshop options will provide participants with a base understanding of mental health and mental illness as well as practical strategies they can implement in their daily lives in terms of supporting others and their own mental wellbeing in a condensed yet hands on format.
