AgSafe announces end-of-season Mental Wellness Debrief sessions for B.C.’s ag producers
October 23, 2023 By Kaitlin Secord
Beginning this fall, producers across B.C. will have an opportunity to connect with industry peers through AgSafe’s upcoming virtual Mental Wellness Debrief sessions. The debrief sessions are offered at no cost to participants and are an opportunity to discuss the challenges and stresses they faced during the season.
The sessions will be held on November 28 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm PST and December 5 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm PST.
Recognizing the unique challenges faced by producers, these virtual sessions aim to create a confidential environment where farmers, ranchers and growers can connect, share and reflect on their experiences in a group discussion guided by a clinical counsellor.
These debriefing events are hoping to provide a space for producers to connect with others facing similar challenges, and acknowledge the hard work, unpredictability and unexpected hurdles faced during the past production season. The goal is to support the mental health and well-being of producers coming out of this season and moving forward.
By facilitating collective reflection and open dialogue about the challenges producers are facing, AgSafe hopes to set the foundation for increased resilience and connection within the agricultural community. Participation is free, voluntary and confidential, ensuring that all attendees can speak freely and openly about their experiences.
