174: Rural Stress Review – overall summary

This Briefing, taken from a review of rural stress research, lists groups susceptible to stress, notes that stress in rural women has been neglected and that there are difficulties in locating stress in rural communities. Stress in farming is not only due to bureaucracy and the need for farmers to change their businesses it is also caused by changes in the perception of farmers and by farmers of their place in rural society. The review concludes that there is a need for better communication of research to all those dealing with rural stress.
