You’ll learn how MHFA is involved in the agriculture space and how MHFA is responding to COVID-19. And we will explore MHFA curricula updates and national mental health resources available to women in agriculture. In addition, we will preview the Mental Health First Aid training course.
Topic: Exploring Kids and Mental Health (RECORDED)
Presented by: Monica Kramer McConkey, LPC | Eyes on the Horizon Consulting
Summary: How do I know if my child or adolescent is going through normal development or has a mental health condition? This webinar will explore common mental health conditions in children, warning signs that may indicate a mental health problem, and how to support your child as they deal with the ups and downs of their mental health.
Topic: A Better You for A Better Farm (RECORDED)
Presented by: Emily Krekelberg, Extension Educator, Farm Safety & Health | University of Minnesota Extension
Summary: With low commodity prices, high debt loads and challenging weather in recent years, farm families are experiencing a high amount of stress. The COVID-19 pandemic added an unprecedented set of circumstances to already stressful conditions on many farms. Some days, it can seem impossible to stay above it all. A better farm starts with a better you. In this webinar we will learn about wellness, self care, and strategies to help yourself and others cope with stress.
