We can all get bogged down from time to time.
Country men have a well-deserved reputation for being resilient and strong, but there are lots of factors that can affect our mental health too—droughts, floods, rising input costs, falling commodity prices, pressure from banks, family pressure, feeling compelled to stay on the farm, and more.
There are a lot of challenges of living in regional areas and it takes guts to speak out if you’re bogged.
Centacare Catholic Family Services and Are You Bogged Mate? are hosting two free community mental health presentations, which aim to connect country men with support services and breakdown the stigma associated with seeking help.
