About the study


U.S. agricultural workers suffer from significantly higher rates of mental and behavioral health challenges such as anxiety, depression, and suicide—a problem that is often exacerbated by reduced access to healthcare resources. This project will leverage community knowledge and networks to better assess the state of mental and behavioral health among agricultural workers in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado and identify strategies to fill gaps in available support.
