Abstract: As mental health is currently recognised as one of the major health issues currently facing farmers and the general public; this set the basic platform for The Land to produce a ‘special publication’ that would assist us in bringing to our readers, partnering sponsors and specialist organisations the important factors about mental health issues. This special project resulted in a highly informative “Glove Box” Guide booklet that gave families a closer insight into what signs to look for, how to recognise them early, what assistance and support groups there are available for consultation, plus feature stories of those who have suffered and have come out the other side and are living more normal lives today. This 56 page stitched & trimmed quarto magazine was produced on ‘75 M-Brite’ stock and has been accepted as a most worthy project not only by readers, advertisers, sponsors and specialist industry organisations, along with NSW Government Health and Primary Industries Ministers – who have sent their accolades and thanks for such a worthy project. Advertiser and sponsor feedback has been exceptional and are totally supportive and were very proud to be part of the project. Since the guide was published, The Land has partnered with NSW Farmers Association (who work with RUOK), to sponsor a monthly page on mental health updates, as well as readers participate with monthly online blogs with The Land’s editor and specialist personnel/therapists from Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP).
