Available Tailored SMHFA Courses

SMHFA for Vet Staff

The veterinary profession has some unique stressors and challenges that can contribute to higher levels of stress and mental health issues. The emotional demands of the work, long hours and workload, financial stress, high expectations, client communication, compassion fatigue and isolation are just some of the stressors that can affect Vets.

SMHFA for Gamekeepers

Gamekeepers in Scotland face unique mental health stressors and challenges. Key stressors include isolation, long working hours, physical demands, unpredictable work schedules, public scrutiny, animal welfare concerns, financial pressures, harsh weather conditions, bureaucracy, conflict resolution, and mental health stigma.

SMHFA for Farming Staff

Farming in Scotland presents unique stressors and mental health challenges for those who dedicate their lives to it. Unpredictable weather, financial pressures, and rural isolation can take a toll on the well-being of farmers, exacerbated by changing agricultural policies and the complexities of navigating bureaucratic regulations
