Farming can be unpredictable and demanding. At times the passion for your work can be challenged with things outside of your control like the weather or market fluctuation. These and other circumstances can lead to stress, sadness and a sense of loneliness, or depression.
The Pennsylvania Department of Agricultural, along with other State Ag Departments, have provided funding support for a resource to help you or someone you know who is struggling. The AgriStress Helpline is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Additional resources can be found at the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture's website.
