A website from UGA Cooperative Extension

We wanted to let you know about an important event for community leaders and organizations across Georgia interested in supporting the mental health and well-being of rural farmers and their families. 

From healthcare providers and nonprofits to county officials and faith leaders, the 2022 Farm Stress Conference welcomes all who want to further their efforts in battling farm stress within our communities. The goal of this event is to learn from each other, connect communities with existing resources, and establish partnerships across organizations. 

Key target audiences for this FREE event include medical providers, counselors, church leaders, extension agents, Georgia Farm Bureau members and staff, policy makers, lenders, local elected officials, county/city municipal staff, pharmacists, school system personnel, agricultural producers, and agribusiness owners/operators. In addition, 2.5 CEU general contact hours are available for social workers and other professionals, including licensed family counselors, marriage/and family therapists.
