Maine Looks to Boost Mental Health Resources for Farmers
AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) — Maine’s agriculture department is adding new resources about mental health for farmers and foresters in the state.
The Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry says it has added a mental health resources page to its website.
The page includes information about noticing signs of stress and tools for managing stress.
The creation of the website follows a move by the agriculture department to work with the Maine Farm Bureau on a mental health mailer about recognizing warning signs.
