Hospitalization

Following evaluation, full or partial hospitalization may be recommended for some individuals.

Full hospitalization

With full hospitalization, a team of mental health professionals assesses, stabilizes, and works with each patient as they learn how to manage their illness. Programs may include:

  • individual and group psychotherapy (talking through problems)
  • family involvement
  • educational programming
  • treatment and crisis planning
  • medication management

Partial hospitalization

Partial hospitalization is for patients who have enough support at home or in their community to return to a safe environment each evening.

Our programs include:

  • Day treatment for adults - Adults attend six hours of programming, five days a week. Each person works with a team of mental health professionals. His or her program may include individual and group therapy, family involvement, education about his or her condition, treatment and crisis planning, and medication management.
  • Support and therapy groups - Children and adults may attend a support group free of charge. Additional therapy groups are available.
