Agriculture is a high stakes industry and sometimes things just do not go as planned.
This fall’s cooler and wetter than usual weather has created no shortage of challenges for agriculture producers as they work to get their crops out of the field. As in any industry, this type of uncertainly can be stressful for farmers and their families and it is important that they are aware of the resources available. The following hotlines are available:
- Mental Health Hotline (24/7): 1-877-303-2642
- Crisis/Distress Lines: Edmonton 780-342-7777; Calgary 403-266-HELP (4357)
