Cultivating Women in Agriculture
Raising awareness of farm stress is important, but offering tools to help weather the stress is critical. This interactive online series sets out to help women in agriculture cultivate resiliency by focusing on what they can control in these challenging times and connect them with resources and information that can help them manage stress.
The Rx Abuse Leadership Initiative (RALI) is partnering with Code 3 to bring the RALI CARES educational program to communities across the United States. The RALI CARES trailer is outfitted to look like a teenager or young adult’s bedroom, but it is filled with hidden warning signs of substance misuse. Former law enforcement and experts point out the red flags of substance misuse based on their years of experience and discuss ways to seek help if someone is struggling with addiction.
A virtual experience of the trailer is also available. Due to the sensitive nature of the information, you must be 21 years of age or older to enter.
If you or someone you know is struggling with addition, you can contact the Minnesota Department of Health at 651-201-5000 or 888-345-0823 to access resources.
