What is SAgE?

By coordinating resources to alleviate stressors, the SAgE Network supports the overall well-being of people in agriculture.

The Southern Ag Exchange Network (SAgE Network) is the Southern Region effort of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN), which is made up of four regional groups charged with addressing heightened stress and elevated suicide rates in rural farming communities.
