Boots and Heels S2, bonus episode: Boots, Heels and Yellow Wellies

Why is poor mental health one of the biggest hidden problems facing farmers today? Where can you reach out for support? What is the #MindYourHead campaign?

In this very special episode, we stand with Yellow Wellies for Mind Your Head week, which aims to break the stigma of mental wellbeing in the agricultural industry, and share our own personal challenges.

We start with Stephanie Berkeley, founder, about the initiative and the very real problems that anyone can face when it comes to mental health.

We also catch up with James Arney, a reigning champion and two-time winner of Farmers Weekly’s Britain’s Fittest Farmer, about why physical health can have a positive impact on mental wellbeing.

Finally, we welcome Emmerdale and Strictly star, Kelvin Fletcher who tells us how things are going on his new farm, and why no matter the size of your farm everyone can feel the realities of isolation and loneliness.
