About

Communicating with Farmers Under Stress

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.  Purdue Extension Educators will facilitate a workshop to help you recognize and respond when you suspect a farmer or farm family member might need help.

Participants will:

  • Build awareness around potentially stressful conditions affecting some farmers.
  • 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.

The primary audience for this workshop includes professionals who work with or support farmers and farm families, such as inspectors, financial advisors, those associated with state Farm Bureaus, medical providers, those in seed, fertilizer and chemical sales,  although anyone is welcome to attend.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday, November 13th 2019 from 10am-2pm at The Barn in Fowler Park, Terre Haute, IN.  Please register at: http://www.cvent.com/d/7hqjxt
