Getting farmers off the paddocks and into the ocean

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:34 pm on 9 March 2021

Charity, Surfing for Farmers has been set up to help farmers get a break from working their land and improve their mental health.

It has been set up following the big increase in the number of farmers who have taken their own lives in recent years.

Programme co-ordinator, Jack Dustin speaks to Jesse about the pressure on the rural sector and how a surf with others followed by a casual BBQ  can help farmers de-stress.
