It’s cold and dark, pennies might be tight and maybe we’ve given up on the ‘less chocolate and booze’ resolutions already. But with “36% of the entire farming community reported to have described themselves as “probably” or “possibly” depressed” (Farmers Weekly, 20 October 2021) it’s no trivial matter.

Don’t forget, Blue Monday isn’t scientifically proven to be sad – it’s just another day. But it’s a good excuse to open up a conversation about mental health with those you know.
