Will To Live is a Rural Health Charitable Trust that prevents wait times when farmers need it most - let's not make them wait any longer.
Right now we have a waitlist for rural NZ community members who are in need of support today.
In 2021, the Rural Change Fund was created to provide better access to private psychologists for New Zealand Rural Communities. This was motivated by the devastatingly long 8-week waiting list to see a psychologist or counsellor in the current public health system.
The Rural Change Fund provides 3x private counselling sessions per farmer with the aim of reducing the waiting time. This fund is normally easily accessible to anyone employed, managing or owning a farming operation in NZ. With your help, we can allow better access to quality support now - instead of making people wait in their time of need.
With your help we can make it accessible for farmers to obtain personal and profound growth through the guidance of mental health professionals; psychologists and counsellors. A confidential, safe and understanding ear to talk to. Rural Change Fund sessions range from $150-$250 and each farmer has access to 3 sessions.
All fundraising efforts and donations go towards the Rural Change Fund.
Let's not make them wait any longer.
Rural Change is a funded private well-being program for New Zealand farmers operated by the Will To Live Charitable Trust, founded in 2018 by Elle after her partner, a young farmer took his own life.
Will To Live has since been providing support through its Rural Change Program by providing funding for mental health resources to rural communities that are often isolated from accessing help.
The Rural Change fund will provide 3x private counselling sessions per farmer. This fund will be easily accessible to anyone employed, managing or owning a farming operation in NZ. The cost per hour session can range from $150-$250.
