Event examines farm stress, solutions

BRETZVILLE — To assist with the issue of farm stress and good mental health, Purdue Extension and their partners are reaching out to farmers through two workshops on Monday, March 16. Each workshop will provide the tools to handle stress so that county farmers, their families and local communities can better cultivate a productive mindset in the face of stress common to rural areas.

The first workshop will take place at the Dubois Community Park at Jasper-Dubois Road and Hwy 545, Dubois, between 5 and 7 p.m. The second workshop will take place at the Dubois County 4-H Fairgrounds’ Clover Pavilion at 4157 S. State Road 162, Huntingburg, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Each session will instruct attendees on ways to identify stress, to learn what can trigger stress, and to know helpful techniques for responding to stress. A meal is included with each workshop.

There is no charge to attend, but reservations for materials and meals are due for either of the locations by Tuesday, March 10, to the Purdue Extension office at 812-482-1782 or email duboisces@purdue.edu .
