Farm Fit is a wellbeing project for farmers and their families run by Land to Sea CBT in partnership with Fairwinds Cornwall.
Farm Fit is 1 of 12 projects to have been successful in securing funding via the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Suicide Innovation Fund to offer support to farmers and families across Cornwall and the IOS.
We aim to engage with the farming community, working with partnership agencies to provide practical wellbeing support.
Farm Fit is run by an experienced mental health practitioner and CBT Therapist who has 20years experience working in NHS mental health services.
Farm Fit works in a practical and constructive way, supporting farmers to help identify, manage stressors, and build resilience in a way that is right for them. Offering timely access to a wellbeing assessment for wellbeing support and psychological therapy as required. Providing the correct level of intervention tailored specifically to individual need. If the farmer or their families require more specialised support, they will know who to refer to for further support.
Farm Fit understands that famers work long hours and leaving the farm for appointments can be a problem. Therefore, Farm Fit can provide support over a range of modalities such as phone, online and offer ‘walk and talk’ sessions in which they can visit your farm offering an outreach approach.
