Title: Content Analysis of Extension Mental Health Information in the Southern Region
Presenter: Juliene Porciuncula, Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at NCSU
Date: June 27th, 2024
Time: 12:00 p.m. Eastern
Synopsis: Contemporary institutional emphasis on farm stress has led the Extension System to develop a variety of online information resources directed at the mental health of farm populations. We conducted a web-based search and content analysis of online materials on mental health and farm stress from Extension websites from thirteen Southern states and two territories. The content analysis showed that most online farm stress Extension resources emphasized self-help strategies and were directed at the general farming population. In conclusion, we provide recommendations for the development of online farm stress and mental health information resources.

Title: Climate Change and Farmer Mental Health: A Participatory and Systems-Based Approach
Presenter: Christopher Weatherly, Associate Professor, University of Georgia School of Social Work
Date: July 17th, 2024
Time: 12:00 p.m. EST
Synopsis: Because of their closeness to and dependence on the land, climate change will disproportionately impact farmer mental health. Despite local and global reliance on US farmers' health and wellbeing, there are limited studies elucidating the impacts of our changing climate on their mental health. This webinar will highlight a research project where Dr. Weatherly spoke with both farmers and the mental health providers that serve them about the various cultural and structural factors underlying the relationship between climate change and farmer mental health. The project took place in southeast Iowa, and findings add to our understanding of climate change as a stress multiplier for farmers. This project also provides insight into best practices for approaching farmers on the topics of both climate change and mental health.
