Regions Hospital Doctors & Specialties Mental health DayBridge Partial Hospitalization Program

Sometimes people need extra support to cope with life’s stresses. That’s where DayBridge, an intensive outpatient mental health program, can help. We have the expertise to help people handle everyday stressors, heal old wounds, and develop new ways to grow and strengthen coping skills. 

The DayBridge partial hospitalization program (PHP) is part of Regions Hospital’s mental health services. We’re a recognized leader in providing diagnosis, mental health treatment and crisis intervention services. DayBridge has been carefully designed to promote healing, while also providing comfort and safety. 

Our program requires a referral from a mental health professional or medical practitioner, and is currently offered in a secure, online format. This gives our clients the support they need while also reducing COVID-19 risk.

What is an intensive outpatient mental health program?

An intensive outpatient program helps adults who are struggling with mental illness. The goal of the program is to help people manage their mental illness with less frequent therapy or just medication.

Who is DayBridge for?

DayBridge is for adults 18 years and older who need intensive therapy but can safely live at home with the support of family and friends. Most of the people we work with have been referred after completing a hospital stay or have mental health symptoms that require a higher level of care than one-on-one therapy.

Clients with primary substance use disorders often need a different level of care, focus and support than our program offers. Our programming does not address substance use disorders, however clients with substance use may be referred and screened for the program. All clients will be asked to abstain from substance use during the program.  

We have expertise in providing services for a wide range of behavioral and mental health needs, including:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Isolation and loneliness
  • Managing overwhelming emotions or stressors
  • Restoring level of functioning
  • Developing coping skills
  • Improving self-care
How does DayBridge work?

In order to be screened for entry into the program, DayBridge requires a referral from a mental health professional or medical practitioner. To help make sure everyone can safely get the care they need during the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve developed a secure, online programming format.

Clients will need internet access and a quiet, private place where they can participate. The support and structure will be just as comforting and engaging as in-person programming. 

What can DayBridge clients expect each day?

Five days a week, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., our clients participate in structured groups led by our experienced and caring staff. They also meet individually with our psychiatric practitioner two to three times each week, and have the opportunity to participate in individual or family sessions with our clinical psychologist.

Everyone’s therapy programs will be tailored to their unique needs and goals, but we’ll focus on helping clients:

  • Reduce stress by drawing upon the client’s strengths and available resources for healing
  • Develop effective ways to handle thoughts, feelings and behaviors
  • Manage medications
  • Increase awareness of sensory preferences and strategies
  • Boost relationship and problem-solving skills so each client can reach their personal goals
Who do clients work with at DayBridge?

Who clients work with will depend on the nature of their therapy and their personal goals. Our team includes professionals who are trained and experienced in:

  • Psychology
  • Psychiatry
  • Nursing
  • Social work
  • Occupational therapy, music therapy and yoga therapy

Our team is located at Regions Hospital, where we’re supported by a full-service, Level I trauma center to provide care for any additional health needs.
