These reports address mental health issues in the agricultural sector by analysing sectoral realities, factors, needs, policies and initiatives at national level in the project partner countries. They have been developed in the context of FARMRes (Farmers Assistance Resources for Mental Health), an Erasmus+ project that aims to raise awareness and provide strategies for farmers to cope with mental health problems. These national reports analyse the current situation of the sector in Spain, Finland, Germany and Ireland; plus a short report from a European perspective. It identifies factors affecting farmers’ mental health, highlights initiatives to support their mental health and reviews the current state of national policies on this particular aspect of health and well-being. These reports also aim to identify preliminary training and awareness-raising needs, a specific objective that forms the basis on which the Summary Report, one of the main outputs of the FARMRes Project, was prepared. The report is based on desk research and interviews with policy makers, farmers, stakeholders and experts in the field.
