"The Unbreakable Farmer", Warren Davies, spoke to a crowd of about 100 recently on his experiences with mental illness and how he remained persistent.
The event was held at St Xavier's Primary School hall, and featured an acoustic performance from local Dean Whitton and lots of food. It was hosted by Gordon Barry & Co and Ruralco.
Gordon Barry & Co's Rebecca Tunbridge said "it was fantastic".
"Warren spoke about his own journey with mental health and how he overcame those challenges, and he spoke about the influence he's had on other people's mental health," Ms Tunbridge said.
"We've had a lot of good feedback and conversations about the night. It was fantastic."
Ms Tunbridge said the most important thing attendees took away from the event was to "start a conversation".
"Whether it's a neighbour, a friend, or just someone you know and trust, or mental health services like Lifeline - don't be afraid to approach them," she said.
"In most cases, you're not isolated.
"The main goal of Warren's talk is to create awareness of mental health and to start conversations from that."
