FarmWell Wisconsin is a project funded by the "Wisconsin Partnership Program." We focus on general farm safety and health; mental health; and professional development for a variety of health professionals (doctors, nurses, medical students, social workers, and other allied health professionals). Program offerings are described and will be handled through our FarmWell Wisconsin partner website.
WeCOPE is an Extension-led program focused on improving mental health, well-being, and physical health. WeCOPE is activity based and in it's full form consists of seven sessions or "lessons" with an array of practical activities that increase positive emotions. Research shows that displacing negative emotions in a purposeful way promotes better physical and mental health and well-being. The WeCOPE program can also be boiled down into one or more shorter offerings.
