The Farm Family Wellness Alliance is a collaboration between various organizations and nonprofits aimed at providing much-needed resources for mental health in rural America. Terri Moore, from the American Farm Bureau Federation, emphasizes the need for more inclusive mental health services, stating that the challenges in rural America are different from those in other areas.
Moore explains that national hotlines may not fully understand the unique challenges faced by individuals in rural communities. This is why the Farm Family Wellness Alliance provides a resource for those living in rural areas to access anonymous mental health and wellbeing services online at www.farmfoundation.org/resources.
The initiative aims to bridge the gap and provide the necessary support for those experiencing mental health issues in rural America. It’s an important step towards addressing the stigma surrounding mental health and ensuring that everyone has access to the help they need, regardless of where they live.
