Communicating with farmers under stress

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. — Numerous factors may cause stress for farmers. Many farmers face financial problems, price and marketing uncertainties, farm transfer issues, production challenges and more. You may know farmers who struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, indecision or suicidal thoughts.

You want to help, but maybe are not sure what to say or do. Or maybe you find yourself having to deliver difficult news to farmers. This workshop will help you recognize and respond when you suspect a farmer or farm family member might need help.

The objectives of the workshop are:

· Build awareness around potentially stressful conditions affecting farmers and ranchers.

· Learn Stress triggers, identify signs of stress and review helpful techniques for responding.

· Learn techniques for identifying, approaching and working with farmers who may not cope with stress effectively.

· Learn where to go for additional help.
