Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) helps individuals stabilize their mental health symptoms and receive recovery services through a variety of educational, skill-focused and processing groups.

The PHP team is made up of psychologists, clinical social workers, occupational therapists, mental health practitioners, nurses, a psychiatrist and peer specialists.

PHP serves adults of all backgrounds age 18 years and older who may be experiencing increases in symptoms of depression, mania, anxiety, psychosis or suicidal thoughts. Individuals experiencing increased symptoms due to a lack of medication or medication change can also receive PHP services.
