WI Farm Center Offers Help To Farmers In Crisis

The state ag department wants to help people in the ag industry catch people heading into a mental health crisis before it happens. Wisconsin Farm Center director Jayne Krull says they’re offering special training called Q P R or Question, Persuade, Refer.

“Our training is for farmers to help their fellow farmers or for the agricultural service providers who go to those farms like the milk haulers and the veterinarians and those types of people to get training so they can identify a potential person in crisis.”

Krull says this is one part of the Evers Administration’s efforts to improve mental wellness for the state’s farmers and to get help to people in need. For more info or to sign up for a course, go to Farm Center dot W I dot Gov.
