24/7 Crisis Line Built for Farmers and Ranchers

24/7 Crisis Line Built for Farmers and Ranchers

Recorded On: 07/19/2022

Farmers and ranchers in four states (Texas, Wyoming, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) can now access a crisis service helpline 24/7 staffed by trained professionals. Join AgriSafe and ViaLink for a 30-minute overview of this newly formed AgriStress Helpline for Farmers and Ranchers.  The AgriStress Helpline is an evidence-based suicide prevention lifeline designed for agricultural communities.

Participants will learn how:

This innovative crisis model serves a critical unmet need.
The model was designed by credentialed professionals trained to respond appropriately to the agricultural community, through a program developed by experts in mental health, agriculture production, mediation, and financial analysis.
The crisis line utilizes a "care navigation" process where the helpline responders: triage for safety and provide de-escalation using a crisis intervention model; provide emotional support and coping techniques; and, when necessary, direct callers to the appropriate resources for their situation.
The expansion to new states and eventually a national helpline is both economical and feasible.
