I am assessing the benefits of farm work for individuals with a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
My survey is online, anonymous, and should not take longer than 10 minutes to complete.
I am looking for individuals who have worked on a farm for at least one growing season (6 months) within the past 2 years, have a diagnosis of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that preceded the farm experience, are at least 18 years old, and can read and write in English (simply to be able to complete the survey).
Individuals could range from occasional volunteers, paid workers, interns, workshares (who work in exchange for a share of product) and is meant to allow for a range of working experiences.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions at MWalls at Smith dot edu. This research project is for the completion of my MSW degree from Smith College School for Social Work.
If you choose to email me, be aware that your responses will still be anonymous, though I will be aware that you have viewed the study and are interested in participating.
