Communicating with Farmers Under Stress Workshops

For Ag Professionals or Anyone Who Talks to Farmers or Ranchers

You may know farmers and ranchers who struggle with stress, anxiety, depression, burnout, indecision, or suicidal thoughts.  Maybe you find yourself having to deliver difficult news to them.  Nebraska Extension offers a workshop to help you recognize and respond when you suspect a farmer, rancher, or rural family member might need help.  This workshop will help you:

  • recognize signs of stress in yourself and others
  • review helpful techniques for responding to stress
  • learn how to identify and approach others who may not be coping well
  • know where to find appropriate resources
