Creating FarmSalus: An assessment tool for farmer wellbeing
FarmSalus is the name given to the Farmer Wellbeing Assessment Tool. FarmSalus was created as part of the Hill Country Futures Programme.
The name was inspired by the Roman goddess of safety and wellbeing.
FarmSalus aims to:
• Provide a tool for farmers, catchment groups, and rural professionals to measure and monitor farm success through the lens of farmer health and wellbeing
•Provide a resource for rural professionals that can open discussions on farmer health and wellbeing and how this impacts on wider farm success
