Cultivating Resiliency for Women in Agriculture

Brenda Mack

Little is known about current rates of depression in farm populations. Research has shown:

  • Farmwomen have unique self-perceived needs in responding to farm stress because of the multiple roles they play on farm.
  • Farmwomen’s mental health and psychological well being is under researched.

This project focuses on collecting early detection data from farmers, in particular female farmers, followed by virtual telehelp/webinar sessions.
