dc.description.abstract Agricultural farm workers are the backbone that keep America running. Far too often agricultural farm workers are placed under physical and mental exhaustion. Agricultural workers face multiple challenges including language barriers, poor access to health insurance, and high rates of poverty. Ultimately, this affects their mental and physical health and far too often this population is unable to seek the resources they need. This creates difficulties affecting their productivity, hobbies, motivations, ability to handle life's challenges, thus creating an inability to live a content life. Working in strenuous physical health conditions can create poor mental health and negatively impact your overall wellbeing. (NCFH, 2021) The purpose of this scoping review was to explore how mental, physical and substance use health risks and conditions affect agricultural farm workers and to bring awareness on how these numerous factors label agricultural farm workers as an at-risk, invisible, and marginalized population.
