WRASAP Network Quarterly Meeting June 2023 (Zoom)
June 1 @ 1:00 am - 2:30 pm
Join us for the Western Region Agricultural Stress Assistance Program (WRASAP) Network Quarterly Meeting
Thursday, June 1, 2023 1:00PM PST | 2:00PM MST | 3:00PM CST | 4:00PM EST
This is a 90 minute networking event.
High levels of stress are present in agricultural communities. Unstable finances, the pressure of multigenerational farm lineage, injury, chronic illness, harsh weather conditions, and more recently stressors associated with COVID-19 are among the challenges producers face daily. The WRASAP network of partners believes that the unique needs of agricultural communities must be addressed. This is done through communication and collaboration with partners across the Western region to offer education, support in navigating resources, and funding opportunities for agricultural communities.

Ms. Velez will be discussing her project and continued efforts to reach farmers and farmworkers to provide training on how the body and mind work together, and how developing simple healthy habits lead to improved mental wellness.
Maria Dod is a tax preparer and community Promotora in Yolo County.
