MU Extension releases mental health toolkit

The University of Missouri Extension and Show-Me Farm Safety have released a toolkit to help rural Missourians access mental health resources. May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

Missouri Ag Director Chris Chinn says the Together We Can tools will help the ag community inn Missouri start the conversation about managing stress. She says farmers and ranchers face new and unique challenges every day and managing the stress that come with them can be demanding.

MU Extension health and safety specialist Karen Funkenbusch says with increased pressures on farmers, ranchers and their families, the toolkit will help open up conversations about mental health making it comfortable to talk about and to get help. Link Here.
