Mental Health in the Field

Traveling and engaging in field research — whether within or outside the US — expose students to demanding activities. Those often compound or exacerbate existing emotional & physical issues. To help prevent adverse impact on your health, honestly describe any health conditions in the application for any IFR field school. The IFR and field school director(s) will evaluate whether health conditions may be accommodated in the typically remote, rustic locations where we operate that usually offer minimal health care services.
