Members of Canada's agricultural industry now have access to a new mental health resource.
The Do More Ag Foundation, will launch on Jan. 30th at the Farm Tech conference.
It will focus on providing farmers with support and creating awareness about mental health issues in the industry.

As the discussion about mental health in agriculture continued, Keller realized that the industry needed an organization to focus on this issue.
