The New Zealand government has committed $2.4 million to support the mental health of farmers and growers affected by cyclones and floods. The funding will be allocated to Rural Support trusts in Northland, Waikato-Hauraki-Coromandel, and the East Coast regions. These trusts offer free and confidential assistance to farmers facing personal, financial, or climate-related challenges. The funding will help coordinate local recovery services, organize wellbeing events and workshops, and provide specialized support. The package is in addition to the $35.4 million allocated in Budget 2023 for the recovery of rural communities affected by weather events. The government recognizes the important role of Rural Support trusts in assisting farmers during challenging times and aims to support their crucial work.
