ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — A group of agriculture and behavioral health organizations have launched the Colorado Agricultural Addiction and Mental Health Program (CAAMHP), aiming to provide support and resources for farmers and ranchers struggling with mental health. The program provides vouchers to offset the cost of accessing licensed behavioral health professionals.
Participants in the program can request vouchers, connecting licensed behavioral health professionals who have taken the time to understand the specific stressors our agricultural communities face. The program is anonymous and focuses primarily on telehealth services, allowing farmers and ranchers to access care during the most stressful seasons when leaving their work may not feel possible.
For more information about the program and a list of partner organizations, please visit CAAMHPforHealth.org.
