Farm and Rural Stress Hotline

Even those with toughened hands and hearts need someone to talk to. Extreme weather conditions, machinery breakdowns, a volatile ag environment, long hours that prevent time with family, and lowered income all cause frustration.

That’s why Avera offers the Farm and Rural Stress Hotline where you can talk to one of our skilled, compassionate mental health professionals and trust them to help you navigate whatever you’re experiencing – such as symptoms or signs of anxiety or depression.
