Partial Hospitalization Program

The Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program (MH-PHP) is a hospital-based outpatient program designed for adults 18 and older. MH-PHP incorporates an individualized treatment plan which describes a coordination of services wrapped around the particular needs of the patient, and includes a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care under the direction of a psychiatric provider. The program reflects a high degree of structure and scheduling. Many patients who participate in the Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program (MH-PHP) have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, a depressive disorder, or a bipolar disorder, though individuals who struggle with other mental health conditions may be assisted by the MH-PHP level of care as well.

The MH-PHP offers a well-coordinated program of care that provides intensive treatment directed by a psychiatrist in a structured setting. Our clinical, holistic approaches include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness based-treatment plus education and medication management.
