Farmers' Mental Health

Farmers' Mental Health

Adam travels to Herefordshire to meet the UK's full-time farming chaplain, David Gwatkin.

David has been on the emotional frontline during coronavirus as his role involves supporting the mental health of farmers in his local community. 

The pair pay a visit to farmer Sam Stables, who has dealt with depression, and has benefited from the one-to-one emotional support the chaplain has provided.

If you are feeling emotionally distressed and would like details of organisations which offer advice and support, go online to bbc.co.uk/actionline or you can call for free, at any time to hear recorded information on 0800 066 066.
