How you can help

Rural+ founder and NFYFC's former Chairman of Council, Claire Worden, is asking clubs and counties to get behind the Rural+ campaign by doing three things: 

  1. Find out who your local contacts are that support young people with mental health issues – such as The Farming Community Network, the NHS or a similar organisation.
  2. Host a club evening on mental health and invite one of the above contacts to run the session.
  3. Promote YFC in your local communities to encourage more rural young people to get involved and understand how YFC can help combat feelings of rural isolation through our varied programme of activities.  

We will also be promoting the campaign on social media so if you're a Twitter user, please use the hashtag #ruralplus.

We are also looking for people to talk about issues and difficulties they may have faced - you can be anonymous if you prefer. It can help others to hear that someone else has experienced similar problems of stress and depression and managed to find help. Please contact the communications team in confidence on 02476 857228.
