Living in the country? Feeling down? You’re not the only one – information leaflet

People’s reasons for living in the country are many and varied. Whether you were born and reared there or made
a deliberate decision to move, people tend to associate living in the country with having a better environment, more space, being more relaxed and possibly being safer. While these facts to a large extent are true, country life
does not always live up to its perceived idyllic image and there can be many associated difficulties with living in a
rural area.

Please see below for information/leaflet circulated by the HSE regarding Farm & Rural Stress.
