The Farm Family Wellness Alliance, a collaboration between various organizations and nonprofits, has developed an online platform to address mental health and farm stress issues in rural communities. According to Terri Moore from the American Farm Bureau Federation, there is a need for more inclusive mental health services in rural America as the challenges faced there are different from those in other areas. National hotlines may not fully understand these unique challenges.
To bridge this gap, the Farm Family Wellness Alliance provides a resource for individuals living in rural areas to access anonymous mental health and wellbeing services online at www.farmfoundation.org/resources. This initiative aims to provide the necessary support for those experiencing mental health issues in rural America.
