A touching interview with farmers Doug and Wendy Avery about coming close to losing everything through Doug's depression, and about their realization that therewere many other farmers in the same situation.
"This isn’t a disease of low performers. This is a disease of people who have high expectations and high levels of achievement.’’
Doug calls it taking care of the 'top paddock' and he's now on a mission to get rural people to look after their mental health.
