We envision a culture in Agriculture where all producers are encouraged, empowered and supported to take care of their mental well being .
Do More Ag is helping to realize this culture in agriculture by creating awareness about mental health and breaking the stigma that currently exists while building a community of support and resources for those impacted and affected. We will help all producers realize they are not alone and they have an entire industry behind them.
This event is FREE to attend , however preregistration is requested for catering numbers.
