Support Contact Numbers

Is there enough done to give support to people in that state of mind? Even to council people after a person does commit suicide? I know some people never ask for help and it's kinda hard to find out if someone thinks like that. But with farming it is very stressful and well it's a bigger strain on people.

In addition, your local Vicar and Minister are there for all parishioners who need help regardless of whether they are a member of the church (or chapel) or not. There are also C of E agricultural chaplains who will have a more farming based perspective who are there to listen.http://www.fwi.co.uk/farm-life/how-church-support-for-farmers-goes-well-beyond-religion.htm

Although a repeat of some of the contact numbers above, the FW article also lists some more organisations and websites that offer help but may not be so well known.

A CHAPLAIN who runs a helpline for gay farmers, Keith Ineson, is asking for volunteers to help cope with the demand for the service. Mr Ineson started the helpline 15 months ago as a sideline in his work as a Salvation Army rural chaplain in Cheshire. He said that he became aware of a need for a helpline when some farmers confided in him about their sexuality after having suffered years of depression.
