Life on the land is rewarding, however, it can often be isolating and unpredictable.

CRT believes that location or finances should not be a barrier for rural communities and farmers to access mental health services. By joining the TIACS alliance, CRT is helping to remove these barriers through funding for free counselling sessions and raising awareness of TIACS vital service within the communities we operate in.
