Sustainable Farm Families™ program recognised as an example of best practice

Victorian Workplace Mental Wellbeing Collaboration recognises SFF™ programs as best practice.

According to the VWMWC Resource Centre, the National Centre For Farmer Health’s Sustainable Farm Families program is recognised as an example of best practice for improving the health, wellbeing and safety of farmers. It focuses on connecting farmers and their families with the broader community, industry experts and health services to equip farmers with the knowledge and motivation to look after themselves and their business. Over a three-year period, workshops are delivered to farmers who are encouraged to develop an action plan. Evaluation in the form of health monitoring, surveys and personal follow up has illustrated the ongoing effectiveness of the program.
