Introducing Farmers Thrive - Support Service Available to MKC Members
Mar 20, 2020
Producers, now more than ever, are dealing with a multitude of stressors in their lives. COVID-19 presents a brand-new set of challenges and struggles. And farming overall has been very difficult these past few years. We all know and see the financial burden producers and their families live with on a day-to-day basis. We also know the impact all of this has on their mental health.
Recognizing this, our member-owners now have access to a resource through MKC called Farmers Thrive. Land O’Lakes and Gravie has partnered with BHS to offer Farmers Thrive, a cost free, confidential resource for farmers and their household members to help them through a wide array of life challenges. With Farmers Thrive, producers can connect with a care coordinator 24/7 by phone, live chat, or secure message through the BHS portal. Producers can also take advantage of new content and resources specifically tailored to COVID-19.
Producers do not need to be enrolled in the Land O’Lakes Cooperative Farmer Member Health Plan to take advantage of Farmers Thrive. They simply need to be an active producer member of MKC.
