Randy Roecker, Farmer Angel Network Co-Founder, was advocating the need for mental health resources for rural and farming communities at the annual Ag Day at the Capitol presented by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau. Randy and other Sauk County Farm Bureau members met with Representative Tony Kurtz, Senator Howard Marklein, Representative Todd Novak and others. He was able to share his experiences coping with depression as a farmer, lack of resources, and need for additional mental health resources for our community.
Farmer Angel Network works to build capacity for mental health services in rural and farming communities. Thank you, Randy, for your dedication, passion and willingness to share your own experience to help bring change and save lives.
