This workshop is designed for Agriculture Service Providers to equip them with the skills and knowledge to support farms and farm families in times of distress. The University of Maryland Extension Farm Stress Management Team will train service providers to identify signs of distress, develop skills to communicate with those experiencing stress and provide resources both locally and nationally. Financial and regulatory topics will also be discussed as they are often contributors to stress on the farm.


Upcoming Training (All hosted from 9:30 AM - 2:30 PM):

  • Capital Region (Comfort Inn, Bowie, MD): May 24, 2022

  • Comfort Inn Conference Center, 4500 Crain Hwy, Bowie, MD, US, 20716
