Farmers have the opportunity to join a free lunchtime discussion on resilience and mental wellbeing with Dr Tom Mulholland on February 8.
For the past 30 years, Dr Mulholland has worked clinically in hospitals, surf camps and on Russian icebreakers, and was the first ambassador for Farmstrong.
As an emergency medicine hospital doctor and rural GP, he has been touring NZ since 2014 in his retro Chevy ambulance trying to keep people out of hospital in rural areas.
He is the founder of the Healthy Thinking Institute, has written two internationally bestselling books, and founded the Kynd wellness app www.kyndwellness.com used by companies such as PGG Wrightson. His aim is to get 10,000 farmers to measure, monitor and manage their health and wellbeing risk using the app.
People who tune in to the discussion will get a chance to ask questions and the event will be emceed by television journalist Matt Chisholm.
The talk is the third in a series organised by Federated Farmers, the Dairy Women’s Network and DairyNZ. Earlier talks featured Dr Lucy Hone and Dr Paul Wood, and follow-up workshops will be hosted by the Dairy Women’s Network and DairyNZ.
