There are several uncontrollable risk factors that may cause stress for farmers, farm workers and agricultural professionals. Many farmers face financial problems, market uncertainties, farm transfer issues, production challenges and communication barriers. You may know farmers who struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, indecision, or suicidal thoughts.
This short program will help participants create self-awareness and provide them with tools and resources to help those in need.
Mending the Stress Fence is beneficial for those experiencing stress or those who live or work with those who may be experiencing stress. Note, this format does not reveal participants unless they voluntarily identify themselves by name in the chat feature and is a safe place to share personal stories and hear from others with like experiences.
