 “One Welfare” builds on the One Health concept and is a way to recognize the many social interconnections between human welfare, animal welfare and the integrity of the environment. In practice, it is also a call for a coordinated program of action:

  • to improve human welfare in order to improve animal welfare (and vice versa)
  • to coordinate actions between animal  welfare, human mental health and other services, and
  • support environmental stewardship as a fundamental step for both human and animal welfare. 

A variety of resources are listed here to help increase awareness and advocacy for the improvement of mental health resources for farmers, farm staff, service providers and veterinary personnel within the agricultural industry. Animal welfare resources are available through the National Farm Animal Care Council.
