Researchers at the University of Guelph are taking the temperature of farmer mental health in a new national survey.

Those in the Canadian agricultural community are invited to complete an online survey to help researchers at the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College understand the impacts of farm work on mental health.

The survey takes about 20 minutes and “will provide our agricultural community with important information on the mental health of our farmers,” states the press release, with five lucky survey respondents winning $200.

The survey closes May 7.

Findings from this study will provide further insight into data previously collected in the Farmer Stress and Resilience Study (2015/2016) and Farm Management Canada’s recent Healthy Minds, Healthy Farms Study (2020).
