A new service provides pre-paid, ongoing wellness coaching and counseling services to Iowa farm families. This confidential support for a variety of life events is easily accessible via phone, text, live chat, video or app.
While stress in life is normal and can move people toward positive change or action, when it crosses the line of impacting decision-making, relationships and physical health, it needs to be addressed. Those in agricultural communities who experience burdensome stress may struggle making day-to-day decisions on their operations and can be more prone to accident-related injuries.
To help address these concerns and to raise awareness of this new service, Iowa Farm Bureau will be hosting speakers from Farm Foundation, Personal Assistance Services and an experienced rural mental health specialist to provide an overview of free health services available to farmers to assist in challenging times.
