Providing Culturally Competent Care for Farmers and Farm Families, With Emphasis on Mental Well-BeingContains 4 Component(s)
Alarming rates of suicide among production farmers have prompted public health officials to increase the awareness and cultural understanding of providing wholistic care for those in rural agricultural areas. Unique aspects of farm life and farming can contribute to higher levels of depressive symptoms and increased stress. Higher levels of depression, in addition to suicide, can also increase a farmer’s risk of injury and development of chronic disease, impacting overall quality of life. The agrarian culture is one of strong work ethic, self-sufficiency, conservative views, and adherence to gender roles, which can make discussion of mental well-being distinctly different from clients who are not from the agrarian culture.

Objectives: By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: Have a greater understanding of the agrarian culture.
