About the webinar
Studies indicate that financial and production issues are among the risk factors on farmers' mental health.

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

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Identify stress signs and symptoms;
  • Practice three everyday strategies for managing stress;
  • Find out where to go for more help and resources;
  • Make an action plan for managing stress.

This workshop is promoted by Michigan State University Extension.
