Maine is known for its blueberries. Your mental health can be just like picking berries. Sometimes, you pick the sweetest, juiciest berries to give you energy for the road ahead. Other times, you pick berries that taste nasty, or worse, are poison! 

A counselor can tell you which berries are sweet and which are sour, and can give you the energy needed to go on.
