Our goal through the Prevention, Education, and Outreach program is to provide the most effective educational and preventative services and programs to children, adolescents, educators, adults, parents/guardians, business leaders, law enforcement officers, faith community members, medical professionals and families in our communities.  We hope that through all we do, independently and in partnership with other community organizations, we help create a community that is understanding and supportive of those with emotional, social, and physical disabilities. 

Horizons partners with the United Way of Reno County for the following:

     Mental Health First Aid

We call this mental health literacy - or a basic understanding of what different mental illnesses and addictions are, how they can affect a person's daily life, and what helps individuals experienceing these challenges get well.

     ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training)

ASIST is a two-day interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide life-assisting suicide first-aid intervention using the Pathway for Assisting Life (PAL) model.  Research shows that ASIST provides long-term financial benefit to communities and that ASIST-trained caregivers help those with thoughts of suicide feel less suicidal and more hopeful.
