Access to trusted, skilled mental health providers is often limited in rural settings. Cooperative Extension agents can use 13 research-based questions to identify mental health professionals and family consultants with the skills to work effectively with farm and ranch families. When informed Extension agents collaborate with family consultants and mental health practitioners in innovative ways, they can provide ranch and farm families with family consultation that reduces their stress and depression levels and enhances their native self-sufficiency.
