Greetings,

The weather has been unseasonably hot recently. As farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers battle heat and drought, keep them in your thoughts. Reach out and offer a compassionate ear. The Mountain Plains MHTTC has a farm stress page with helpful resources - including suicide prevention hotlines - which we encourage you to share.

We have a little something for everyone this month. Learn the difference between languishing and thriving mental health, attend a session about engaging with your local farming community, and explore our newest toolkit about building resilience among tribal law enforcement officers. We are also proud to announce the launch of Classroom WISE, a 3-part training package for school personnel.

Lastly, there is still time to participate in our needs assessment survey. The results will help guide future training and technical assistance provided by the Mountain Plains MHTTC.

Be well,

The Team at Mountain Plains MHTTC

Healing Our Protectors: Building Resilience Among Tribal Law Enforcement
