Studies shows that there is a direct relationship between suicide and mental health. However, here in India, only a few people talk about mental illness. And even fewer want to address it in the context of farmer suicides. The major agrarian causes of farmers' distress in the country include indebtedness, crop failure, drought, socio-economic and personal conditions. Through this segment of the Cultivating Hope campaign, we aspire to raise awareness about the adversities faced by farmers in India and find ways to overcome challenges by adapting to solutions. Join hands with our #FarmersForFuture Movement and write in to us with your suggestions, for improving the current state and future of our farmers.
