Agriculture + Mental Health Awareness Month

You may know that May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Because this is such an important issue, especially for those of us involved in agriculture, I wanted to share a podcast interview I did with Adrienne DeSutter.

Adrienne’s background makes her perfect for this conversation.  Not only does she have a counseling degree, but she is also a farm wife who has spoken extensively about mental health and agriculture.  She joined me to talk about why this is such an issue for our industry, and some tips for taking care of yourself.  I’m a believer that the best defense is a good offense, so I am hopeful that our conversation can give folks some ideas of steps to take to help handle stress, anxiety, and depression before a crisis arises.
