For National Farm Safety and Health Week (September 18-22), the FFRI encourages people to participate in the suggested mental health activities related to each of the daily topics for National Farm Safety and Health Week 2023. A list of these activities is located on their website at https://www.siumed.edu/farm/events-and-webinars.
If you or someone you know is a farmer and may need mental healthcare, visit the official FFRI website at https://www.siumed.edu/farm, or text 1-833-FARMSOS. This will also give you access to the 24/7 helpline, many mental health resources, information on training programs, relevant blog posts, and a podcast based on topics from feedback the FFRI receives. The FFRI will also begin holding Suicide Bereavement Support Groups in January 2024 at no charge to participants.
