Healthy Minds Healthy Lives Workshops

Untreated or ignored stress and mental health issues in rural areas impact quality of life, economic development and lives of farmers, agriculture workforce and rural families.

To raise awareness and help reduce the stigma surrounding mental health in the agriculture industry the Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives program was created by the Indiana Rural Health Association. Twenty-three free, one-day insightful workshops with subject matter experts will be conducted in 2022. The workshops will begin Feb. 10 in Mount Vernon, Ind. The series of workshops will continue in 22 other rural sites around Indiana through July.

The free workshops through the Healthy Minds, Healthy Lives program are open to the farming community, including agribusinesses and related service industries, the faith community, local leaders and families.

A workshop will be March 16 in Leesburg and March 17 in Rochester.

Registration opens 30 days prior to each event.
