Active Farmers started due to the concern about the level of depression throughout regional Australia. The statistics are very alarming, therefore Ginny Stevens wanted to a create a program that was 'proactive' for mental health. There is a strong connection between being well connected within your community, being physically fit and being mentally strong and this is our philosophy at Active Farmers. We believe that the more people throughout regional Australia who understand this concept the greater chance we have of improving the mental health of our farmers and community members.
Active Farmers is expanding every day. Click the towns to find out which towns have the Active Farmers service.
