Here to Help NM

The United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture awarded the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA) a grant for the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network program, in an effort to enhance a network that connects individuals who are engaged in farming, ranching and other agriculture-related occupations to stress assistance programs. NMDA has partnered with the New Mexico State University (NMSU) Cooperative Extension Service to allocate these funds across multiple platforms. NMDA is leveraging NMSU’s Southwest Border Food Protection and Emergency Preparedness Center (Center), which is a collaborative effort between NMDA and Cooperative Extension Service, to enhance existing efforts aligned with achieving the goals of the stress assistance network. In collaboration with the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau, the Center is working to improve behavioral health, reduce and mitigate stress and provide positive outcomes for New Mexico’s agricultural communities. One goal is to leverage existing network resources such as the Stronger Together campaign by the American Farm Bureau Federation through a grassroots campaign to increase local awareness and education. The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network “Here to Help NM” website provides information about stress prevention, wellness and health resources.
