Farmers Saving Lives, a Virtual Event hosted by AFBF’s Farm State of Mind Campaign
AFBF’s Farm State of Mind Campaign is hosting a free Mental Health Month virtual event on Tuesday, May 31, at 1 p.m. Central. Farmers, ranchers and their families are encouraged to attend via telephone, smartphone or tablet from planters, harvesters, greenhouses, dairy barns, wherever they are. Three Farm Bureau members who believe that advocating for farmer mental health wellness is a way to save lives will share their stories.
