Please join with Cooperative Extension colleagues on Tuesday, JULY 27 from 1-3 for the next FRSAN-NE Extension Cohort meeting. For over 4 months, the new Extension Cohort has been exploring ways to support Extension Cooperative programs to contribute to the USDA funded Farmers and Ranchers Stress Assistance Network-Northeast Region (see: https://www.youngfarmers.org/frsan-ne/). The Extension Cohort is an inclusive effort by Cooperative Extension personnel from across program areas, including agriculture, finance, public health, health insurance, economic and rural development, education, research and policy.
Please join us at the July meeting as we celebrate being awarded FRSAN Cohort funding! The funding will allow the Extension Cohort to create tools and materials to support helping Cooperative Extension personnel gain the skills and confidence needed to communicate more comfortably about farmer and agricultural worker stress and mental health issues. The 27 July meeting will offer the opportunity to discuss the implementation of the “Using Improvisation and Humor to Build Confidence, Communication and Community Resilience in Response to Stress and Mental Health Challenges”. (“The Humor Initiative”). During the meeting we will introduce the consultants and discuss “next steps” of project implementation. Please bring your ideas and inputs to discuss at the meeting.
For more information and to answer any queries about the Extension Cohort, please contact Jerri Husch, PhD. Coordinator, FRSAN-NE Extension Cohort.
