As you may know if you're a long-time listener, mental health is a topic that is near and dear to my heart. With September being National Suicide Prevention Month, I wanted to do an episode focused on mental health in the agriculture context.
So I reached out to Ted Matthews. He has spend his career working with farm and ranch families and now works as a counselor and director of the Rural Minnesota Mental Health Specialists. This organization is state funded and offers counseling to farmers and rural residents in Minnesota free of charge.
Ted joined me on this podcast to talk about the importance of prioritizing mental health, what unique stressors face farm and ranch families, and some tips for those involved in agriculture.
