A US farmer has used his annual corn maze to send a message he hopes will help save lives.
Picking a theme for their corn maze is an annual tradition for Govin's Meats and Berries in Wisconsin, and this year, the company chose to boost awareness of mental health.

The 40,000 square metre maze crop has the message "your life matters, talk about suicide", along with a suicide prevention hotline number.
Owner John Govin said on Facebook that he had the idea after a family member took their own life in January.
"We came up with the idea on the way to a funeral of a family member who died from taking their own life," he said.
"Suicide was something we, unfortunately, had to face and learn about."
"We hope to make a difference in someone's life and help them understand that they matter!"
The giant message took four men around five hours to make.
