The Farm Family Wellness Alliance is a new online platform that provides much-needed resources for mental health and farm stress issues in rural communities. Collaborating between various organizations and nonprofits, the initiative aims to provide support for those experiencing mental health issues in rural America.
Terri Moore from the American Farm Bureau Federation emphasizes the importance of inclusive mental health services in rural areas. She notes that the challenges faced by individuals living in rural communities are different from those faced elsewhere, and that national hotlines may not fully understand these unique challenges.
To bridge this gap and provide necessary support, the Farm Family Wellness Alliance has created an online resource for individuals living in rural areas to access anonymous mental health and wellbeing services at www.farmfoundation.org/resources. This initiative will help ensure that everyone has access to the support they need, regardless of where they live.
