Farm Stress Brief Series

The Farm Stress Brief Series is a peer-reviewed publication housed at the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture and is funded by the USDA-NIFA Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (# 2020-70028-32730). 

The objective of the Farm Stress Brief Series is to provide a venue for reports on research and programming that centers the risk factors, barriers to care, and strategies to address farm stress. 

These reports are evidence to support work being undertaken by a multitude of stakeholders to reduce farm stress and the risk of farmer suicide. 

Understanding farm stress systematically, arising from economic, social, political, cultural, biophysical, and environmental causes, we accept submissions from an interdisciplinary community of scholars and practitioners.
