A mental health awareness program for farmers and the agriculture community
In the Know is a four-hour mental health literacy workshop created specifically to educate the agricultural community. Designed to fit with farmers/producers’ schedules, it distills critical information and incorporates the agricultural community culture.
In the Know is meant for farmers, producers and persons with whom they have regular contact, including family members, peers and allies in the agricultural industry such as veterinarians, breeders, seed or feed salespeople, financial institutions, accountants or other community members. The course provides education on topics such as stress, depression, anxiety, substance misuse and how to start a conversation around mental well-being.
Each session will run from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. with a 30 minute lunch.
