The Importance of Mental Health Awareness for Extension Professionals

Jami Dellifield and Amanda Raines, Ohio State University Extension, Hardin County

We believe that as Extension Professionals, we must be educated about mental health problems in order to best serve our communities and help eliminate the mental health stigma. As Extension professionals, we often cannot give our clientele the help that they need when faced with mental health problems, but we can connect them with local resources and provide support. It is important that Extension professionals are ready to face mental health problems head-on and have a plan in place when faced with crisis.
