Discussion will be facilitated by Ashley Machado, a mental health consultant who works primarily with agricultural professionals and their families.

Machado is an advocate of rethinking the ways that we support mental health in the agriculture industry and specializes in breaking down big ideas and deep feelings into simple, actionable strategies. This two-part workshop will be held via Zoom and participants should plan on attending BOTH sessions to complete the workshop. Registration information can be found on the Nebraska Women in Agriculture website (https://wia.unl.edu) and questions can be directed to Jessica Groskopf, Nebraska Women in Ag Director (308-632-1247; wia@unl.edu).
