Providing Kansans the resources they need to help cope with ag-related stress.
Kansas farmers, ranchers and their families are the backbone of this state, providing us with high-quality crops, livestock and dairy products. Unfortunately, the stress that comes with these responsibilities can be overwhelming. Unpredictable weather, heavy workloads and financial worries can sometimes take their toll on farm families and lead to mental and emotional distress, substance abuse, anxiety, depression and even suicide. Caring for your own health and wellness in this high-stress profession is often overlooked but is just as critical as caring for your farm business.
Resources compiled on this website can help care for and assist Kansas farmers and ranchers in their well-being. You'll find help with stress management, financial and legal challenges, and many other needs. As more tools are developed, this website will be updated and serve as a hub of current information and resources.
If you are a farmer in crisis, or know of someone in need of immediate assistance, contact your local Kansas Community Mental Health Center or call the National Suicide Prevention Line at 988.
