Farm stress is the stress experienced by farmers and their families due to the unique agricultural work environment. The global health pandemic has had a substantial effect on farm stress. Farming and ranching communities already dealing with high stress levels saw incidents of drug and alcohol abuse rapidly increase, as well as rising numbers of death by suicide.   In response to the increasing need for mental health tools designed to address the specific needs of farm and ranching communities, the Mid-America Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), the Mid-America Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC), and the Mountain Plains MHTTC collaborated to develop a set of easy-to-use ("Grab-n-Go") presentations and flyers for use by extension offices and behavioral health providers in farm communities. Based on interviews with extension agents in HHS Region 7 and HHS Region 8, the team identified four key areas of concern: mental health awareness, stigma, co-occurring disorders, and death by suicide.   Authors Erika Holliday, MPH, CHES, Sr. Program Support Coordinator, Region 7 ATTC Mogens Bill Baerentzen, PhD, Serious Mental Illness Program Director, Region 7 Mid-America MHTTC Stephanie Smith Kellen, MA, PLMHP, Pre-Doctoral Psychology Intern Region 7 MHTTC Brandy Clarke, PhD, LP, Director, Region 7 Mid-America MHTTC Maridee Shogren, DNP, CNM, CLC, University of North Dakota, Region 8 MHTTC and ATTC Genevieve Berry, Project Manager, Region 8 MHTTC

Depression, Alcohol and Farm Stress: Addressing Co-Occurring Disorders in Rural America This guide provides resources specific to screening for co-occurring disorders experienced by farmers, farmworkers and farm families in rural communities. Healthcare providers, behavioral health professionals, and social workers are facing increasing pressure to respond to a host of unmet substance use and mental health needs of rural communities. In response, with support from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Mountain Plains ATTC and the Mountain Plains MHTTC have collaborated to release a resource guide to assist rural healthcare providers with screening and assessment of alcohol use disorder and depression. The guide uses a case scenario to illustrate the most common barriers encountered in identifying co-occurring disorders and underscores the unique needs of rural communities that are home to agricultural producers.
