Macra na Feírme has signed up as a partner to the See Change campaign. Representatives from See Change and Macra na Feírme have held a number of meetings to examine how the two organisations can work more closely in a shared commitment to reduce the stigma of mental health problems.
Macra na Feirme is a voluntary organisation for young people between the ages of 17 and 35. The organisation consists of a nationwide network of clubs with six key areas of activity: agriculture, sports, travel, public speaking, community involvement and performing arts.
See Change will be working with Macra na Feírme to develop mental health campaigns that will hopefully change attitdues in relation to mental health problems for young farmers. To find out more visit www.macra.ie
