Supporting Farmers in Stressful Times

Farmers and rural communities face unique stresses and emotional situations, including financial challenges, unpredictable weather, physically demanding work, and more.

Farm & Rural Helpline

The helpline is available to Minnesota farmers, rural residents, and anyone unsure of what to do about family or friends who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, or a mental health crisis.
