FarmHand Program

Current Pilot Project


Rebuilding Western Kentucky communities after the December 2021 tornadoes that devastated the region will involve more than addressing the houses, farms and physical infrastructure which has been lost. The region needs local support in honing tools to take care of their mental and emotional health. The FarmHand project proposes a partnership between McCracken County Cooperative Extension Service, the Southeast Center for Agricultural Health and Injury Prevention & Eastern Kentucky University's Psychology Clinic to provide telepsychology services and mental health resources to Western Kentucky agricultural community members.
