Farm Stress: Facts, Impact of COVID-19, and Resource and Training Needs of Mental Health Care Providers

This new publication on farm stress describes challenges related to the accessibility, availability, and acceptability of mental health services, the various stressors that farmers and ranchers face, the impact of COVID-19, and valuable resources to providers who serve farming communities. 

Many stressors relate to a loss of control. Long-standing issues of market variability, weather conditions, and lack of mental health care access are further complicated by the impact of COVID-19. Disruptions in supply chains, long-term isolation, new concerns about meatpacking plants, and unclear COVID-19 solutions mean that resources to assist mental health are more important than ever.

For more information on helpful resources and suggested stakeholder partners, be sure to read the full publication.
