Exploring mental health and natural disasters in agricultural communities in Puerto Rico

Key Personnel

The overarching goal of this project is to adapt and pilot an assessment tool to explore mental health status using previously developed resources. The investigative team expects that the implementation and use of the developed tools will provide a pathway to effectively assess the mental health and resilience of agricultural workers in Puerto Rico as it relates to climate change and disasters (e.g. earthquakes). During Year 4, Dr. Pagán-Santana continued to identify culturally appropriate research methods and tools to better understand agricultural workers’ mental health as it relates to natural disasters and climate change.
