An ECOP Program Committee draft status report of Extension Programming related to Farmer Stress/Emotional Health – January 2020
NC-ANR Farm Stress Programs April 2020
The goal of the Farm Stress Group is to develop and deliver programming to farmers and agricultural stakeholders (spouses, agribusiness, etc.) to increase awareness of mental health conditional among farmers, develop skills in identifying signs of stress and mental health conditions, and increase self-efficacy in recommending self-help strategies or professional intervention. Members of the Farm Stress Group developed and delivered an in-person or online presentations in the spring as a pilot of the program. Currently, we are revising the program and developing an evaluation for participants. Revisions are guided by feedback from Illinois extension educators and field specialists who have 1) participated in the program, or 2) have expressed interest in delivering the program in the future.
