Cultivating Resilience Podcast

Cultivating Resilience podcast logo

If you’re a farmer, you know the joys of working the land. You also know how stressful it can be—from family and financial pressures, to isolation and an exhausting job that has zero days off. In fact, agricultural workers experience suicide rates that are 50% higher than the national average, and that number is rising.

On the Cultivating Resilience podcast, farm care starts with self-care. Hear from other farmers about the struggles they face every day and how they are overcoming them. Get connected to #farmermentalhealth resources and a community where farmers and ranchers can support each other when you tune in.

Please share the show with someone you think it may help.

During the episodes host Lisa O’Hara, from Bodhi Counseling in Maryland talks with guests about daily farm stressors, and how these can be navigated. This podcast is by and for extension professionals to help better understand how to approach these conversations, and what to listen for, to best support farmers they are working with.
