OSU Addresses Farmer Mental Health
Despair in farm country was already a topic of major concern before the pandemic. And the societal and economic dislocation only heightens the concern.
Oregon State University Extension's Small Farms program keeps an eye on the situation with farmers, offering sessions to connect farmers with each other and mental health services. Those sessions are online for now, including one coming up as a webiner on May 4th.
We hear from Maud Powell and Angela Boudro at OSU Small Farms about issues and responses.
