Mental health issues are impacting our agricultural and rural communities each and every day. Increased understanding of the impact, resources and ways to overcome this impact is needed. Together, we must seek to be better informed and discover solutions to support our farm families and rural communities. We can do more to engage and advocate to restore health and hope in the Heartland.

The goal for this unique program is to increase awareness of the importance of addressing mental health issues, understand the impact of stress factors and identify ways to support at risk individuals. Our hope is to elevate the importance of the need for easily accessible resources to support agricultural and rural communities. 

This symposium is being planned and coordinated by ALP Class 18 members:  Meggie Foster, CountryMark; Jackie Barber, Elanco; Somula Schwoeppe, Feeding America and Schwoeppe Dairy; Sarah Wagler, Nutrient Management Partners; Jeff Cummins, ISDA and Kyle Shipman, Indiana Board of Animal Health in coordination with AgrIInstitute.

Cost to register for the Symposium is $35/person. Please note that space is limited so early registration is recommended. Registration and more details are available at www.healingtheheartland.org
