In 2019, Look Over the Farm Gate facilitated seven screenings of Happy Sad Man Charlton, Bairnsdale, Sale, Mildura, Swan Hill, Yarrawonga and Shepparton. The film focusses on four different individuals and their interactions with mental health challenges, and one individual who works as a rural outreach worker. This was combined with a 30-minute mental health training session delivered by staff from the National Centre for Farmer Health, which aimed to inform and educate participants on identifying and managing mental health issues.
The screenings were run as part of the Community Education component of Look Over the Farm Gate.
Look Over the Farm Gate is now taking expressions of interest for organisations to deliver COVID-19 compliant activities such as workshops, seminars or programs that build greater capacity to identify social and emotional wellbeing issues and build resilience and encourage those suffering to seek support.
