Arkansas farmer opens up about recovering from alcoholism


The American Farm Bureau Federation is urging farmers to talk more about mental health wellness.

During a recent webinar hosted by Farm Bureau, licensed professional clinical counselor Cynthie Christensen said speaking with a therapist is a big first step to combat mental health issues.

“There is nothing more important to your farm operation than you,” Christensen said. “I would really encourage you to value yourself.”

Arkansas farmer James Dixon says he’s hopeful his recovery from alcohol addiction can help others.
