Farmworker stoops over to harvest asparagus

Agricultural workers and producers are known to face high levels of stress. Working conditions are physically demanding, fast-paced and can occur during extreme and hazardous weather. 

Latinx farmworkers face unique barriers that can lead to stress and anxiety, such as language, lack of insurance, and immigration status. Additionally, the temporary and seasonal work activities of agriculture can lead to gaps in employment and loss of wages. Research has demonstrated the importance of mental health and well-being in agricultural workers. In our effort to reduce gaps in access to mental health services, we have compiled a list of resources for you, your family, and workplace.
