COLUMBUS—State Representative Jim Hoops (R-Napoleon) announced today the launch of the #gotyourback campaign, a new campaign to address farmers’ mental well-being launched by the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
“When the rainfall in early spring devastated the farming community in my district every time I had an opportunity to speak to a farming group I always ended with encouraging everyone to look out for each other due to the stress.” said Hoops. “As the saying goes, if you see something say something.”
The #gotyourback campaign is designed to reduce the stigma associated with mental health issues and connect farmers with resources. More information on the #gotyourback campaign can be found here: https://agri.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/oda/gotyourback/
