Meet Nate a 13-year-old who experienced bullying and perceived social isolation from his peers which resulted in challenges in school and thoughts of suicide. Nate has struggled through multiple hospitalizations and finding the right combination of medication and therapy has been challenging. Nate participates in our Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) services at TTP and he wants everyone to know the impact that it has had on him and hopes that others can benefit as well. This statement is from Nate in his own words.
“Being on top of Hot Shot or Tom makes me feel like I have power and someone can listen to me. When I am riding them, it makes me feel like I am in control”.
