Therapist and host of 'You Need Therapy' podcast, Kathryn DeFatta, is on for all '4 things' this week to offer her wisdome on this mental health episode (since September is Suicide Awareness Month). FIRST THING: Amy and Kathryn talk about how it’s okay to not always feel okay. "I'm fine" will only get you so far, so it's important to check in with others (and yourself!!) to see how things really are! SECOND THING: Have anxiety? Do you need to release some stress? Kat shares the Arggh! ball with us (something she keeps in her office for clients, and Amy just ordered one for her house!). It's a simple, small, and cheap way for physical and emotional relief therapy. THIRD THING: Do you know the difference between suicidal ideation and suicidal intent? Kat explains this to Amy because she had never heard of it. They also go over the the correct way to talk about suicide, and share some statistics.

First of all, I would like to say that I enjoy your podcast. I love the idea of talking about 4 things that we can be grateful for in our lives. However, this episode pushed a few buttons with me. My family farms and runs a ranch in North Dakota. I feel your comments on organic foods and Dr Oz comments are misleading and are extremely hurtful to the ag community as a whole. Here is a link I think you should consider reviewing concerning the dirty dozen and the clean 15... https://www.produceretailer.com/article/news-article/2019-dirty-dozen-and-clean-15-lists-released I support all areas of the ag community. We should embrace organic, non organic, conventional farming, and strive to find new ways to help feed a growing world. But misinformation about nutritional value in these areas, the harmfulness of pesticides and gmos, and everything have real world consequences for those that work in the industry.
