There's a lot of noise on social media these days about the environment, food, families, agriculture, health, and finances. And in the College of ACES, we have scientists available to discuss the topics on your mind and in the news.
Our goal is simple—to connect you to the science and help answer your questions.
Mental health is a concern in rural areas, as farmers cope with stress and uncertainty due to economic and environmental conditions. Often, there are no mental health providers in the local community. On this episode, we talk with Josie Rudolphi, an assistant professor of agricultural and biological engineering in the College of ACES and University of Illinois Extension about what some of the risk factors for depression and anxiety among farmers are, and what resources are available to help.
