YES Waiver: Client credits personal growth to equine therapy

Savannah was referred to our YES Waiver program in November 2019. At that time, she was engaging in self-harm and was also fighting depression and anxiety. 

Initially, Savannah had difficulty attending school and expressing her thoughts and feelings. However, Savannah made the choice to commit to taking control of her mental health.

 

Along with our treatment team, we discussed with Savannah the type of therapies she might be willing to participate in to promote her growth. Savannah choose equine therapy, community living support and art therapy.

 

Savannah worked weekly with each provider, and especially loved equine therapy. The results of her hard work are evident. Her school attendance has improved and reports building better relationships with her teachers and peers.

 

Savannah is living proof of the ability a person has to their goals with team support, commitment and perseverance. Prior to graduating from YES Waiver, Savannah was asked what she learned from participating with the YES Waiver program. Savannah shared the program helped to increase her self-awareness and improved coping skills. Savannah stated, “I’ve learned a lot about myself.”
