Mental Health First Aid in the Farming Community

Aug 25, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM CT
Madison, WI | $
Within the farming community, we know that farmers face unique stressors and challenges, such as financial pressures, unpredictable weather conditions, and isolation. Due to the remoteness of farming, sometimes technical advisors or peers are the only people farmers see besides their family or farm staff.

In an effort to support farming communities in coping with the many factors that affect mental health, Marbleseed is offering a mental health first aid (MHFA) training to farm technical advisors and those who work in farmer support roles. This is a full-day, in-person training that will give participants the skills they need to support farmers who may be developing a mental health or substance use challenge or experiencing a crisis. This includes understanding signs and symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, or substance use that may be affecting farmers' well-being as well as knowing the appropriate mental health resources available to direct farmers to for more support.
