Here at Corteva, we recognise the importance of physical and mental health, and want all our customers and suppliers to be the best they can be.
We know the stigma attached to mental health can make it hard to reach out for support. Our goal is to break down those barriers and make everyone more comfortable with the subject. That starts with our employees, who have all been offered mental health awareness training, and are supported with their physical health through various activities and schemes.
We have partnered and we support some of the top rural charities and organisations in this key space, so we can help support our communities.

Are you bogged mate? is all about helping country blokes talk about mental health and suicide while spreading awareness about depression in the bush.
Depression in the bush is a lot like getting bogged in the mud. It might have been just a sticky patch of the road or paddock where the vehicle stopped moving, maybe you needed low range or to winch yourself out. But what happens when you get properly bogged? When it’s down to the running boards, sitting on the chassis, you are not getting out of this one easily – that’s the kind of bogged we mean.
Country blokes are facing challenges like never before but it doesn’t mean you need to get stuck in the mud. There are plenty places to go to get a tow and it takes guts to admit you’re bogged. We’re making sure you’re connected with the right hands to pull you out.
