Bridget’s primary focus is supporting the farm stress initiative and bringing awareness to those in agriculture about the importance of how stress can impact a person. She works daily to try to break down the barriers and stigma that keeps rural Ohioans from seeking mental health treatment. She works to educate every person on spotting the warning signs and symptoms of mental health challenges and how to be a support to someone in need.
