It is well-established that agriculture is a hazardous industry; however, much of the focus to date has been on the physical risks. The mental health of people working in agriculture (e.g., farmers, ranchers, farm workers, and agribusiness) remains an important gap in knowledge. This Special Issue will focus on the mental health experiences of farmers, ranchers, and agricultural workers.
Articles in this Special Issue will relate to the large scope of mental health in agriculture. This could include but is not limited to original research on prevalence, risk/preventative factors, and/or interventions (e.g. curriculum, training), literature and/or systematic reviews and meta-analyses, and other types of studies. Articles could be qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods in nature.
