Description

Disasters can occur at any time and often with little warning. Disasters take many forms, and most areas of family life feel their effects, including mental health and well-being. Planning community outreach can be challenging because there is no “one-size-fits-all” disaster model. Although a natural disaster can devastate anyone, farm families may have additional considerations. This proposal will build upon the national award-winning Kentucky Cooperative Extension In the Face of Disaster program to design a disaster readiness and response toolkit for farm and rural families specific to the southern region. Mental health will be a key component. The toolkit guide will provide a variety of programming options and delivery methods, including (1) presentations, workshops, and webinars; (2) demonstrations and booths; and (3) community panels. The proposal will also continue our work in the arena of Mental Health First Aid. Providing funding for 50 participants that serve rural/agricultural audiences.
