October 28: “The ‘F’ Word (Frost) and ‘S’ Word (Snow) – How to deal with the Winter Blues” virtually at 1 p.m. ET (12 p.m. CDT), hosted by The Rural Resiliency Project and the Cultivating Resiliency Program. This time of year, do you find yourself dreading the F word? (Frost)? Not to mention the S word (Snow)? The drop in temperature and decrease in daylight can have a significant impact on people’s moods and motivation. In this webinar, we will explore the “Winter Blues”, what they are, and how to prepare to do battle with them. Monica McConkey will be leading the session and will be joined by farmers/agriculturalists with experience in agriculturally related stress. Monica Kramer McConkey, Rural Mental Health Specialist, and LPC has 25+ years of experience in the behavioral health field as a child and adolescent counselor, program supervisor, and administrator. Monica grew up on a farm and has an intimate understanding of the dynamics that contribute to farm stress and its impact on farm families. Monica is very much in touch with the agricultural way of life. For more information and to register, visit the registration page.
