Kentucky is known for its bourbon and the Kentucky Derby, a horse race that has millions gathering to watch it every year. Your mental health can be like your horse. If you take good care of it, it can gallop fast and win the race. If left uncared for, it can be slow and falling behind. 

A counselor can be a way to meet all your horse’s needs and give you a leg up in your race for great mental health.
