Mental Health Resources

Agriculture is crucial to our state and local economies, and we are thankful for all the hard-working farm families that work day in and day out to feed, clothe and fuel our world. The agricultural industry features many unique stressors and struggles and often people can feel isolated in this line of work.  Below, you will find nationwide and state mental health resources available to farmers and farming communities.

If you are experiencing a crisis, please reach out to a healthcare provider or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
