Cassie Bouska and Julie Leep, Agriculture and Natural Resources Extension, joined Interim Vice Provost Anita Azarenko in a discussion about a topic near and dear to her heart: helping the farming and ranching community through the stressors of their livelihood.

With grant funding, Cassie and Julie, who are located in Coos County, are leading a statewide project called the Farmers and Ranchers Stress Assistance Network. The network provides resources and training for all of us to recognize when community members in agriculture are facing mental health crises and family stressors.
