The Do More Agriculture Foundation is a not-for-profit organization focused on mental health in agriculture across Canada. The group recently celebrated it's one year anniversary since it launched in February 2018.

Those who work in agriculture commonly suffer from stress, anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion and burnout. At Do More Ag they are focusing on removing the stigma surrounding mental health and providing resource information for those who may need help said, Kim Keller, one of the programs founders.

The Foundation operates under 3 pillars which are: awareness, community and research. They believe that by educating communities on what it looks and feels like to be truly healthy, building a sense of community where people can connect and access resources and continued research for the most up to date information regarding mental health among agriculture are key in their success.
