Lunch & Learn: Farm Stress SPECIAL EDITION
Many of us live in or are from rural communities, so we are well-acquainted with the many concerns facing farmers and ranchers today.

LSSND’s “Farm to Farm Therapy” program is a statewide telehealth network that was developed to be as accessible, private, individualized and affordable to farm families as possible.

It is led by Becky Kopp-Dunham, an experienced social worker and farm wife who understands that farming and ranching aren’t simply jobs – they’re a way of life!

Becky will talk about the particular factors that make it difficult for these rural entrepreneurs to ask for help, why its solution-focused approach works, and what we as communities can do to support those who put food on everyone’s table.

Oct 28, 2020 12:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
