Developed out of the many personal situations that we have encountered when assisting families following the devastation of Natural Disasters. Often the delivery of aid becomes a highly emotive situation for those affected and where at-risk people are more readily recognized.
It became obvious to us, that as much as farmers could willingly do to restore normality to the various situations they suffered, it was equally important to restore hope and problem-solving assistance to affected people.
The Farmers Helping Farmers Care Program focuses on providing help to those in need in terms of volunteer assistance to help in any way possible. As well as placing trained personnel to identify additional needs and connect families to the right social services on a confidential basis.
THERE ARE TOO MANY INSTANCES OF SUICIDE AND EVEN MORE UNREPORTED SUICIDE ATTEMPTS IN REGIONAL AUSTRALIA.
On many occasions the collective impact of such unfortunate events has left some victims so shocked that they are unable to see a means or indeed any purpose of recovery despite all their efforts. Farmers Helping Farmers Care Program has already provided crisis interventions that has saved lives and will continue to strive to do so.
MANY FAMILIES HAVE BROKEN-UP..
WHEN ALL THEY NEEDED WAS A HAND-UP.
While they may greatly appreciate the efforts of Farmers Helping Farmers volunteers and others in physically saving livestock, restoring the work-ability of property and ensuring there is food on the table for the moment, the toll on these geographically socially disadvantaged families is enormous. Although it is very heartening to see how resilient they are for the most part, it is important that the right social services are identified and directed to the families so as to provide the means by which they can work their way back to normality.
Farmers Helping Farmers Care Program has focused on developing networks of referral services to assist such families in need.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE TURNED TO GAMBLING AND ALCOHOL AS A POSSIBLE SOLUTION – WITH DEVASTATING RESULTS
Some family members are assisting through these terrible times, have developed problem drinking and gambling as a way of escaping the pain of the present or in the hope of changing their fortunes as a possible solution or last resort with devastating results. Farmers Helping Farmers Care program is developing intervention and referral programs, once more on a completely confidential basis.
All our programs have been developed in consultation, guidance and supervision with mental health professionals including registered psychologists and social workers.
The Farmers Helping Farmers Care Program was developed to recognize those situations, where specialized help is required. To attempt to introduce Trained and Supervised Care as a priority and has been instrumental in assisting to avert many potentially tragic outcomes.
Because of the HIGHLY PRIVATE nature of each situation the Farmers Helping Farmers Care Program WORKS WITH TOTAL CONFIDENTIALITY 24/7.
