Connecting Oklahoma agriculture with mental wellbeing resources
Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s Cultivating Healthy Minds program is a four-part series connecting Oklahoma’s farmers, ranchers and residents with professionals and resources to help them assess mental wellbeing in friends, neighbors and themselves and to address challenges to create positive outcomes for Oklahomans of all walks of life. The program features three online webinars in the months of August, September and October along with a final in-person session at the Oklahoma Farm Bureau annual meeting in November.
Each webinar begins at noon, and all are open to the public. Registration is required, and there is no cost to participate in the webinars.
