Partial Hospitalization (PHP)

For those struggling with severe mental health concerns such as serious recurring psychiatric symptoms, Partial Hospitalization (PHP), can be a helpful option. 

The goal of PHP is for patients to be able to function in their everyday home environments. During our Partial Hospitalization Program, face-to-face sessions occur at a minimum 3 days per week, 3-4 hours per session. Sessions can include family members, legal guardians, or significant others. Patients may be able to avoid or shorten further hospitalization by completing PHP.
