Summary: Launched in February 2022, AgriSafe’s FarmResponse is an on-demand interactive course through AgriSafe’s Learning Lab. The FarmResponse course addresses farm and ranching cultural competencies for healthcare providers and specialists by exploring the effects of financial stress, land ownership and legacy issues, substance use, suicide, and the work of agriculture on mental wellbeing. The curriculum is based on the Total Farmer Health model as it relates to factors for mental health in agriculture. The goal is to train those who serve in agricultural communities to understand the impact of farming culture on farmer mental health and health-seeking behaviors. This session will present the first year evaluation data of over 500 FarmResponse learners. Come and learn more about this exciting professional development resource. AgriSafe’s FarmResponse program lead will be there to answer your questions about bringing FarmResponse to your healthcare providers.
