Anxiety, depression and coping skills

In this one-hour session, Brenda Mack (MSW, LICSW) will share the signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression connected to the stressors of living a farming and ranching life.

The session will cover:

  • Coping skills and strategies
  • Risk and protective factors
  • Case scenario examples
  • Tools to handle stress
  • Raise awareness of farm stress

Participants are encouraged to ask questions or share suggestions.

Please join the session if you or someone you know is dealing with Ag-related stress, worrying or sadness and are looking for practical suggestions to reduce symptoms.

This new interactive online series helps women in agriculture cultivate resiliency by focusing on what they can control in these challenging times. The series connects you with resources and information that can help you handle stress.
