The DPJ Foundation is calling on the farming community to help break the stigma around mental health this World Mental Health day (Thursday, October 10).

The sector carries one of the highest rates of suicide with one farmer a week taking their own life.

The Foundation has produced a powerful image and video showing 52 pairs of wellies eerily swaying in the breeze. One pair for each farmer who has taken their own life in the last 12 months.

It says this image is the stark reality for many families with an unused pair of wellies left following the death of their family member.

Emma Picton-Jones, the founder of The DPJ Foundation, said: "We wanted to mark World Mental Health day in a special way this year, we decided to create the image as a visual reminder of the issues that are facing the sector in hope it will encourage those in the sector to speak out and ask for help."

The DPJ Foundation provides fully funded counselling to those in the agricultural sector and also works with people who work in the sector to provide mental health awareness training across Wales.
