By Potatoes in Canada


Through her research, Dr. Meghan Cameron has discovered that eight in 10 farmers in P.E.I. are experiencing some level of anxiety or depression – a remarkably high number – shining a light on the importance of mental health.

Cameron, who recently completed her family medicine residency with Dalhousie University and whose husband is a potato grower, joins this episode of Tuber Talk to discuss mental health in farmers, potential causes and key indicators of anxiety and depression and where growers and their families can turn for help if someone is dealing with a mental health issue.
