Agriculture can be stressful, but you are not alone.
Agriculture is an occupation full of potential stressors like weather, changing economic markets, animal health and machinery breakdowns. When these start to compound, many farmers experience excessive amounts of stress, making it hard to remain positive and move forward through the hard times.
Due in part to the stresses that are faced, agricultural workers have high rates of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing excessive stress or thoughts of suicide, please reach out to a confidential crisis support line.
OSU and the Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network is not a crisis center. If you are in need of immediate assistance, reach out to the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988 or 1-800-273-8255 or the AgriStress Helpline at 833-897-2474.
