Full Service Partnership (FSP)
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy/Parent-Child CARE (PCIT/PC-CARE)
In 2007, Tulare Youth Service Bureau began the first Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT/PC-CARE) program in Tulare County. To date Hope Horizon Mental Health has 4 sites throughout Tulare County in the Cities of Tulare, Lindsay, Porterville and Dinuba. PCIT/PC-CARE is an evidence-based practice designed to improve the parent-child relationship, reduce negative and oppositional behaviors between children and parents, improve positive parenting skills and produce long-term positive outcomes for families. Wearing a hidden earpiece, caregivers are coached in positive parenting and setting into place consistent limits for young children. In partnership with UC Davis, Hope Horizon Mental Health has trained and certified numerous therapists in this practice, as well as trained staff at partnering agencies.
Building Bridges – Perinatal Wellness Program
In partnership with Tulare County’s Public Health Department, TYSB has therapists working in the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) funded Perinatal Wellness Program (PWP). This program screens, identifies, and provides therapy and home visiting to pregnant and newly parenting mothers. During pregnancy and post-partum many women exhibit signs of depression beyond the well known “baby blues”. Those identified as at risk for suicide, developing ongoing anxiety and depression and/or an inability to bond with their baby, are referred and provided therapy.
First Episode Psychosis (FEP)
