    Financial stress is a common concern among agricultural producers. The unpredictable nature of farming leaves financial solvency vulnerable to weather, disasters, economics, or a pandemic. Financial instability can cause mental stress, anxiety, and/or depression for the farmer and their family. Unexpected disasters or hardships often increase a persons risk for suicidal thoughts, ideation, and attempts.

    Access to expertise in financial management, risk analysis, mediation, and federal assistance programs is critical for the producer’s mental health and quality of life. A good understanding of options and strategies can become a lifeline. Preventing or intervening early in financial stress is strategic for a producer’s mental well-being.

    AgriSafe’s library of resources have been carefully selected to assist producers to address financial health. Our Learning Lab houses webinars by agricultural mediation specialists and printable resources. The AgriStress ResponseSM Network includes agricultural professionals able to speak to organizations and groups on a range of financial topics.
