'Mending the Stress Fence' Virtual Programs Set for Aug. 29 and Sept. 5

Upcoming Programs

It is important that we all learn how to manage our stress levels and reduce the effects of unwanted stress. Business owners, managers, farmers and ranchers are no exception to experiencing stress. In fact, stress seems to be prevalent in rural communities at times. Too much stress can make us more accident-prone, and it can affect our overall health.

This program provides information on identifying common stressors, recognizing stress symptoms, and managing stress.

Program objectives include:

  • Building awareness of the signs and symptoms of stress in rural communities.
  • Learning the eight dimensions of wellness.
  • Learning how to ask open-ended questions to recognize someone’s stress levels.
  • Improving awareness of the warning signs of suicide and learn about available resources to help support someone in need.
