Stepping up to help. These providers support eliminating barriers to
mental health services for farmers.
Farmers often talk about the hurdles they face in finding mental health services – long hours; geographic distance to a provider’s office; lack of remote scheduling options; lack of awareness among providers about the culture of farming. The following providers are among those in Kansas who have stepped up to self-declare that they want to help eliminate those barriers. They have experience or backgrounds in farming; they offer telehealth and alternate hours for sessions; they offer sliding fee scales; and last but not least, they want to help farmers. If you have had difficulty finding a provider, don’t give up. Please consider reaching out to one of these providers. If they can’t help you, perhaps they can refer you to someone who can.
