National wheat organization signs letter supporting Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network

The National Association of Wheat Growers has signed a letter supporting full funding for the Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN). This program works to establish and fund a service that provides the farming and ranching community with stress assistance programs. In 2021 most farmers, ranchers, and rural adults, reported that they had been experiencing more stress and mental health challenges than in previous years. With many challenges facing farmers such as volatile economy, weather unpredictability, and financial risk, along with a shortage of mental health professionals in rural areas, FRSAN is crucial.
