Summary: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration reports that approximately 20.1 million people aged 12 or older has a substance use disorder related to their use of alcohol or illicit drugs. However, little is known about the prevalence of substance use in the ranching and farming community due to stigma and the lack of research in this population. This webinar will focus on the prevalence of substance use in rural areas through the results of health screening efforts in agricultural work settings.

Objectives: At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to…
1. Explain an overview of this research project focusing on alcohol use prevalence in agricultural communities.
2. Illustrate the importance of rural mental health and substance use awareness through novel screenings.
3. Design awareness strategies for rural communities regarding the importance of seeking treatment.

Intended Audience: Health care providers, health and safety professionals, Ag producers, and rural community members
