AgriStress Helpline: 24/7 Crisis Line Built for Farmers and Ranchers
July 19 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm CDT
Last updated on September 16th, 2022 at 06:57 pm
Farmers and ranchers in multiple states can now access a crisis service helpline 24/7 staffed by trained professionals. View this 30-minute overview of the newly formed AgriStress Helpline for Farmers and Ranchers. The AgriStress Helpline is an evidence-based suicide prevention lifeline designed for agricultural communities.
Participants will learn how:
- This innovative crisis model serves a critical unmet need.
- The model was designed by credentialed professionals trained to respond appropriately to the agricultural community, through a program developed by experts in mental health, agriculture production, mediation, and financial analysis.
- The crisis line utilizes a “care navigation” process where the helpline responders: triage for safety and provide de-escalation using a crisis intervention model; provide emotional support and coping techniques; and, when necessary, direct callers to the appropriate resources for their situation.
- The expansion to new states and eventually a national helpline is both economical and feasible.
We are adding new states all the time! If you are interested in the most up to date information on the helpline, check out the AgriStress Helpline page.
