Arkansas is the state known for its diamond mind. And diamonds are the perfect representation of mental health. Good mental health is shining, valuable, and can sometimes come from the roughest circumstances. But for others, good mental health is rare and hard to buy. 

A counselor can be the mining equipment you need to find your diamond. Talk to an Arkansas-based counselor and see what they have to offer.
