The Day Hospital program provides interventions for acute symptoms of mental illness or psychosocial stressors that interfere with daily living as an alternative to an in-patient admission. This partial hospitalization option allows patients to continue with evening routines while learning new coping skills and strategies during the day in a supportive environment with a multidisciplinary team.
The Day Hospital program provides group and individualized support, averages three weeks in length, with the expectation that patients attend daily from Monday to Friday.
The program provides:
Assessment and stabilization for clients experiencing problems arising from crisis situations
An alternative to hospitalization for clients whose condition, if not stabilized, could result in hospitalization with the emphasis on skill development and system management
Transitional support for clients who no longer requires inpatient care but who do require ongoing contact within a structured and supportive environment to prevent relapse
Support and supervision to clients within the community who are undergoing medication adjustments
