'Growing Stronger Every Day' is a MaxCare video series which focuses on building stronger rural communities. Join us on this journey as we look at ways to improve the wellbeing of our calves as well as the mental wellbeing of our farming community.

In our latest episode we speak with Liane Corocher about personal and business resilience and her role as a farmer and carer. To watch the video click here or it's available to listen as a podcast.

Liane manages the NSW Department of Primary Industries Business and Social Resilience Program. This program is designed to support farmers and fishers to build connections, confidence and skills to manage healthier farming businesses.

"Farmers and fishers are naturally resilient," Liane said.

"They deal with a variety of challenges and risks every day.

"The work my team does across NSW supports farmers to prepare for these challenges, adapt to change and to think about what the long-term future looks like for their business,"

MaxCare Business Manager, Tom Newton explains: "Our farmers continue to face challenging conditions, as an industry and community we need to rally together to support our farmers and help build stronger rural communities."

"MaxCare is there every step of the way, we're here to support our customers through the good times and more importantly in the challenging times.

"We are aware of the challenges and unpredictability of life on the land," he said.

"Mental illness in the bush can be hard to detect, tough exteriors built by the harsh landscape we owe our livelihoods to, and the signature attitude of 'she'll be right' can sometimes get us into to strife.

"With this video series we want to help remove the stigma around mental health and help our farmers address the challenges," Mr Newton said.
