Manitoba Farm, Rural & Northern Support Services (MFRNSS) provides telephone and on-line counselling to farmers, rural and northern Manitobans. We also offer public education, a volunteer training program, and a monthly Suicide Bereavement Support group. The MFRNSS houses a Rural Mental Health Resource Centre with books, videos and articles related to rural, northern, indigenous, and agricultural mental health.
Manitoba Farm, Rural & Northern Support Services is a program of Klinic Community Health www.klinic.mb.ca . Klinic is an accredited crisis centre with the American Association for Suicidology (AAS) and is a member of the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (www.suicideprevention.ca)
MFRNSS staff are Certified Crisis Workers with the AAS. Staff work alongside trained volunteers work to provide much-needed support to callers on the MFRNSS, the Klinic Crisis Line, and the Manitoba Suicide Prevention & Support Line.
