Project Description

This is a systematic review of the published international literature on the effectiveness of interventions to address mental health and chronic occupational diseases in the farming population. Previous systematic literature reviews have been conducted on injury and accident prevention in the farming population, but the literature on mental health and chronic occupational diseases has not been synthesised to date in order to provide clear recommendations for intervention development. Our overall research aim, beyond this study, is to develop and test an intervention to enhance the health, safety and wellbeing of the Scottish farming population
