“…the farm had become a burden and there were no options left…”
A farmer recognized they were feeling distressed because they had the weight of the world on their shoulders carrying the bulk of work on their family farm. They felt like the farm had become a burden and there were no options left for them. They were doing everything they could to keep their head above water, and that’s why they decided to call the AgriStress Helpline for support. While speaking with a trained specialist, they were provided with a compassionate listening ear and emotional support. The farmer was also provided with local resources for long term mental health support in their area that they could connect with after the call.
