This topic is a little different than our normal agricultural law focus. The topic of mental health is one that is extremely important to me. Agriculture and rural America has to do a better job of talking about mental health challenges and working to make positive changes. Our lives literally depend on it.
Today, I am thrilled to visit with Canadian farmer, Lesley Kelly. Lesley is the co-founder of the Do More Agriculture Foundation, a non-profit with the goal of being "champions for the mental wellbeing of all Canadian producers" and a goal of "changing the culture of Agriculture to one where all producers are encouraged, supported and empowered to take care of their mental wellbeing."
