Are you a farmer or rancher? Do you have an adolescent in the house between the ages of 13 and 17? If so, we invite you to participate in an exciting research opportunity.

The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety and the University of Illinois are surveying farm families to better understand how farm stress is experienced by adults and adolescents in the household and how individuals respond to stress. With these results, we will work to develop resources and programs to reduce farm-related stress, improve resiliency, and improve overall physical and mental health among farm adults and farm adolescents.

To learn more and participate, visit this website:

We invite up to three members of your family to participate: the primary operator, the primary operator spouse/partner (if applicable), and one farm adolescent (between the ages of 13 and 17 years old). Everyone who participates will be receive a $10 Amazon gift card.
