Navigate Together

Navigating the rock and the hard place


Farming life is full of uncertainty and unpredictability. We might not always be able to choose what happens to us, we don’t have control over when it rains or what the sheep prices do, but we do have control over the choices we make every day.

Navigate Together is a practical skills program especially for farmers, their families and rural communities. Working with the unique challenges that we regional people face, the program teaches us how to adapt our behaviours and take steps towards what truly matters to us, even during the tough times.


  • Strengthen your psychological flexibility
  • Notice and observe your own experiences from a new perspective
  • Unhook from challenging and uncomfortable thoughts
  • Untangle from work-related worry
  • Build personal resilience, enabling an alternative response to stressful situations
  • Improve your ability to live in the present (rather than entangled in thoughts of the past or future)
  • Explore your personal values and define how you want to show up as a person
  • Apply to real life situations and take the steps that move you towards what’s most important to you
  • Help you support others when they may be struggling
