Experts Urge Farmers to Seek Support

Experts are urging Wisconsin farmers to seek mental health support during the stressful spring season. 

Many farmers are dealing with costly operating expenses, unpredictable weather, and other pressures as they begin to get production going for the year.  La Crosse physician Doctor Kim Lansing says she is also a farmer and sees a cultural barrier with many agriculture operators when it comes to seeking help for themselves.  She is urging anyone who needs support to contact resources such as the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation and the National Farm Medicine Center.
