Virtual workshop

Target Audiences:
Glennis McClure,
It is important that we all learn how to manage our stress levels and reduce the effects of unwanted stress. Farmers and ranchers are no exception to experiencing stress, in fact, stress seems to be prevalent in the agriculture sector. Too much stress can make us more accident-prone, and it can affect our overall health.

This 20- to 30-minute presentation/workshop is available upon request and can be delivered virtually, in person, or as an important addition to other agriculture programs. It is designed for farmers and ranchers, their families, and others that work closely with them in the agricultural industry.

This program provides information on identifying common stressors, recognizing stress symptoms, and managing stress.

Program objectives include:

Understanding signs and symptoms of stress in agriculture.
Learning the eight dimensions of wellness.
Learning how to ask open-ended questions.
Improving understanding and awareness of the warning signs of suicide and knowing how to access resources to help support someone in need.
