Mental Health Innovations in Agricultural Communities Webinar

September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This session is a panel presentation that communicates a forward vision of agricultural mental health. The presenters will explore the development of a farmer specific hotline, the efforts of a state department of agriculture, and unique examples that coalesce around a central objective-to meet the mental health needs of agricultural producers and their families. Hopefully, this session will spark discussion, ideas, collaborations between community and governmental groups to thoughtfully build a mental health safety net for the people that feed America.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the unique characteristics of rural and agricultural communities that should drive innovation in mental health.

2. Understand the scope of work required to develop a farmer specific hotline.

3. Discuss current examples of rural mental health programming innovation.

4. Explore state-level efforts to address mental health and agriculture.

Presenters:

Joan M. Mazur, PhD, Professor, Southeast Center for Agriculture Health and Injury Prevention, University of Kentucky

Dr. Jewel H. Bronaugh, Commissioner, Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

Tara Haskins, DNP, RN, Total Farmer Health Director, AgriSafe Network
