Please join with Cooperative Extension colleagues on Tuesday, April 27 from 1-3 for the next FRSAN-NE Extension Cohort monthly meeting. The Extension Cohort supports the work of the USDA funded Farmers and Ranchers Stress Assistance Network-Northeast Region (see: https://www.youngfarmers.org/frsan-ne/) and includes Cooperative Extension personnel from across program areas, including agriculture, finance, public health, health insurance, economic and rural development, education, research and policy.
The April meeting will offer Cohort members the opportunity to share their views about the current needs of their state Cooperative Extension personnel with respect to stress and mental health programing. Resources for Cooperative Extension have diminished over the past decade at the same time that the need for Cooperative Extension inputs has exponentially increased. What is the reality of the “current status” of stress, mental health and community resilience activities across each state Cooperative Extensions? Importantly, what areas of work need to be prioritized?
Answering these questions will inform the May Extension Cohort meeting and help define Cohort Extension proposals for funding.
Based on information derived from your registration prior to the meeting date, you will receive a focused agenda, a link to background materials, and the ZOOM link.
For more information and to answer any questions about the Extension Cohort, please contact Jerri Husch, PhD. Coordinator, FRSAN-NE Extension Cohort.
Thank you for your interest and involvement and I look forward to seeing everyone and to greeting new Extension Cohort members!
