Rutland NFU contributes to report into mental health issues within farming community

Serious gaps found in funding to help people in the countryside

Lincolnshire's Rural Support Network was among 20 organisations nationwide to contribute to the findings.

Farmer Philip Wyn says with Brexit uncertainty, even more people are needing help.
