Jackie - Farmer’s wife and Rural Women’s Day founder, Byaduk VIC

My picture of the struggle in farmer mental health is:

Challenging generational expectations, ie. taking time off farm.

Some of the glimmer/joyful moments that reflect farmer mental health for me:

Making a call to check in during the day, for no reason at all, sometimes just to say hello.


A little more about Jackie:

As a rural woman who’s not a farmer but involved in the farming business and a connector of rural women, changing the perception/picture of what mental health looks like in rural communities is important for those seeking support or feeling seen.
