What is a partial hospitalization program?

A partial hospitalization program, also called a PHP, helps adults who are struggling with mental illness. The goal of the program is to help people manage the symptoms of mental illness with education, coping skills, peer support and medication management.

Our intensive partial hospitalization program, DayBridge, meets five days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
