The Network

AB Farm Mental Health Network

In the Know  is a  mental health literacy course designed for Alberta farmers and delivered by mental health practitioners with farm backgrounds.  Participants are supported throughout the session and will learn how to recognize signs of mental health distress and approaches for engaging is safe conversations with someone who may be struggling.  


In the Know is the result of Canadian research and has been validated with farmers across Canada.  Surveys and evaluations from these sessions contribute to the ongoing mental health research and development that supports farmers across Canada.


AgSafe Alberta has the license to deliver this program in Alberta and is looking for partnering communities.  The session and facilitators are available free of charge with communities or associations providing the venue and promotion.  In the Know is a 4 hour session that is ideally delivered in person with a break halfway through, but there is also a virtual option.  For more information or to book a session contact AgSafe Alberta at

This project will work with the existing activities and responses to identify and address gaps, connect people, projects and programs that are already responding and provide recommendations and feedback to governments and funders. The idea is to lay the groundwork for continued collaboration and ongoing activity leveraging what is being done rather than starting something new.
