• At Hope Horizon, the counseling team provides mental health interventions that integrate a team approach with available Board Certified Behavioral Analysts, Administration, Staff, and Teachers to promote Trauma-Informed collaboration across schools and infuse treatment services. 

    If enrolled, your child will have the opportunity to participate in once-weekly individual and group therapy with the Hope Horizon counselors and have availability to meet with their assigned counselor as needed Monday-Friday when school is in session.  These services are provided at no cost to your family, which is provided through your child's IEP, making Hope Horizon a therapeutic day treatment center school. 

    In addition, if needed, your child will have access to mental health crisis intervention while in school.  As needed, a licensed therapist can assess student needs and implement action steps to help remove crisis barriers.  

    The counseling team supports programs available to all students to meet needs, such as Hope Horizon's clothing and hygiene closet, Backpack Buddies weekend food program, and coordination with The Birthday Party Pensacola (a local charity that has adopted our school to provide something special for each child on their birthday).
