Individuals and families farming and ranching across our nation are familiar with the stress and uncertainty that comes with the agricultural lifestyle.  Yet we know that continual exposure to adverse conditions, be they physical, environmental or economic can wear away at even the most resilient of us.  This webinar will remind the audience of the importance of being aware of the signs of mental and behavioral stress, using words that lead to understanding and nurturing a community of openness in seeking and providing support.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to

  • Apply the dual-factor continuum model of mental health to differentiate patient/client functioning
  • Describe and give examples of ways to increase awareness and minimize stigma regarding mental health issues
  • Describe specific options for addressing mental health challenges
  • Describe federal investments that are available to assist communities in providing support
