High levels of stress are present in agricultural communities. Unstable finances, the pressure of multigenerational farm lineage, injury, chronic illness, harsh weather conditions, and more recently stressors associated with COVID-19 are among the challenges producers face daily. The WRASAP network of partners believes that the unique needs of agricultural communities must be addressed. This is done through communication and collaboration with partners across the Western region to offer education, support in navigating resources, and funding opportunities for agricultural communities.
Colorado AgrAbility Program and Colorado State University representative Dr. Bob Fetsch shares an overview of behavioral health in farming, and Utah State University representatives Dr. Ty Aller and Tasha Killian share a brief overview of their project to adapt Mental Health Awareness and Advocacy Program (MHAA) curriculum for farmers.
