Wisconsin State Farmer, the state’s most comprehensive and longest running farm newspaper, features article on Farmer Angel Network. Correspondent, Jan Shepel, attended the farm side chat Farmer Angel Network hosted with Governor Evers and state leaders from the Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection. Shepel's article titled, "Farmer Angel Network highlights farmer mental health efforts at roundtable" explains the event and the efforts of F.A.N. Those present at the event discussed challenges for mental health in rural farming communities and resources available.
Thank you to Wisconsin State Farmer and Jan Shepel for bringing awareness to the topic. The more we bring attention to the issues, the more we can work to break the stigma and bring needed resources to the issues face. Farmer Angel Network works to advocate and bring awareness to mental health needs.
