Within the farming community, we know that farmers face unique stressors and challenges, such as financial pressures, unpredictable weather conditions, and isolation. Due to the remoteness of farming, sometimes technical advisors or peers are the only people farmers see besides their family or farm staff.
Assorted breakfast pastries, refreshments, and lunch will be provided.
Funds are available to reduce the cost of travel and lodging for training attendees. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest in a reimbursement and to be notified of updates.
This training is based on a standardized curriculum created by the Mental Health First Aid USA organization with additional content that is tailored to the farming community created by our certified facilitators.
Approximately 90-minutes of pre-work and a post-event learning assessment are required for all participants. Because space is limited, please register only if you are committed to completing all steps of the training, and please let us know as soon as possible if your plans change and you are no longer able to attend.
Registration closes Wednesday, August 16.
About your facilitators:
Nou Thao is a specialist of the LFPA program with Marbleseed. Mental health and wellness is near and dear to her. In the HMoob community she is a part of, mental health is stigmatized and very isolating. She is working hard to bring transparency with awareness to vocalize and movement to share the language we use in addressing mental health.
Katie Bishop, along with her husband Hans and her talented team, farm 400+ acres of organic vegetables and grain at PrairiErth Farm in central Illinois. In addition to facilitating Mental Health First Aid training, Katie is also a leadership consultant and coach for farmers who want strong teams and greater balance in their lives. In her free time she loves to ride her bike, hike and collect books she never gets around to reading.
