Rural Agribusiness Wellbeing Project
Small business owners in rural and remote Australia face unique challenges to their mental health and wellbeing. A new project is being delivered under the national Ahead for Business program to support the mental health of small agribusiness owners working in Australia’s agriculture, forestry and fishing industry.
The Rural Agribusiness Wellbeing Project will help small agribusiness owners respond to the unique challenges they face in rural Australia including how they are uniquely impacted by adverse weather conditions, financial difficulties and red tape.
Call for agribusiness owners
Everymind is currently seeking small agribusiness owners in rural NSW agriculture, forestry and fishing to:
- Provide input on a wellbeing plan tailored to the unique needs of agribusiness owners.
- Share their story in a video series to reduce the stigma of seeking mental health support when agribusiness owners need it.

Small agribusiness business owners who take part in these activities will be compensated for their time through Everymind's paid participation policy for small business owners.
This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA).
