Farmers in Dorset are at high risk of experiencing mental health issues (Public Health Dorset).
To address this, Dorset farmers have set up a network of Lookouts – trained to spot the early signs of depression and anxiety, and provide support to others. By recognising the signs early, we can help people address the things affecting them and find a positive way forward.
Lookouts are part of the Dorset farming community. They receive basic training in recognising the signs of mental ill-health and are supported by FCN.
