Oregon Agristress Helpline

Agriculture is an occupation full of potential stressors like weather, changing economic markets, animal health and machinery breakdowns. When these start to compound, many farmers experience excessive amounts of stress, making it hard to remain positive and move forward through the hard times. Due in part to the stresses that are faced, agricultural workers have high rates of suicide. If you or someone you know is experiencing excessive stress or thoughts of suicide, please reach out to a confidential crisis support line.

Oregon’s Agristress helpline is now live and provides free, confidential 24-hour crisis support. The helpline is answered by specialists who have received training on the factors that impact people working in agriculture. call or text 833-897-2474.
