OFA members have special benefits with our program. You can access up to 4 sessions at no cost with your OFA membership. Connect with us to book a session through the program. You must be within either L&A or Hastings counties.
The L&A Farmer Wellness Program was a pilot project in 2019, to provide accessible mental health counselling to farmers in Lennox & Addington county. The success of the program has led to its continuation within L&A, and as of June 1, 2020 Hastings County has launched their Farmer Wellness Program. All services are available to members in L&A and Hastings counties.
