These posters are based on a preliminary project scan of what is currently available and accessible to agricultural workers in each region. However, if you identify any other service or support initiative that you think should be included, or if you have any additional feedback, questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to connect with Eduardo Huesca: firstname.lastname@example.org . Updated versions of these posters will be made available later in the season.
This project will continue work to better understand stress and psychosocial factors affecting international agricultural workers, identify prevention opportunities, service and support gaps and promising practices.
