In this moving article, written by Psychiatrist Christine Montross, we see how one person’s reality can be very different from what the rest of us experience. Dr. Montross talks about how fragile the human mind is and how easy it is for someone’s life to be taken over by reasonable fears and anxieties.
Though some of our clients have had delusional episodes, usually by the time they make it to our program, but they are often still struggling with serious mental health issues. We work as part of a comprehensive treatment program to support the client’s goals through work with horses. We may be focused on decreasing anxiety, increasing self esteem, building confidence, improving personal boundaries or any number of other things that will help the client find a happier, healthier life.
If you or someone you know is living with mental illness SEEK help. You can call or email us and we will schedule a visit. We will introduce you to our wonderful horses, show you around the site, learn more about your challenges and how we might be able to help.
