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)
Hope Horizon is proud to support and continue to build upon our “Out Loud” peer-led support group for teens who identify as lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered or questioning (LGBTQ), have parents who are LGBTQ, or are supportive straight allies of this population at increased risk of mental health issues, suicide and bullying.
This group is FREE and open to the public! You do not have to be a client opened for services at Hope Horizon to attend. Thank you to the Tulare County Suicide Prevention Task Force for your partnership in funding this group!

Equine Facilitated Psycho-Therapy
We are proud to partner with Happy Trails Riding Academy where we provide Equine Facilitated Pscyho-Therapy (EFP): a unique service that allows our clients to work with horses in addition to traditional talk therapy techniques. EFP is a form of animal therapy, which is a powerful tool for healing and recovery from physical, emotional, and mental trauma. Animal therapy can provide comfort and support during difficult times, and it can help create a sense of trust and connection with the animal. Animals can also be an effective way to help people learn new skills and engage in activities they may not have been able to do before. Please call us to learn more!
