Max Armstrong shares where farmers often turn in times of trouble

Max Armstrong offers his take on a recent column in the Des Moines Register on farmer mental health. Earlier this year, Max shared that reports on farmer suicide were questioned, but authors of this new column shared where farmers turned in times of trouble. The local church is an important part of the support farmers use in tough times.
