What Is a Partial Hospitalization Program?
A mental health Partial Hospitalization Program (or PHP) is a level of care where patients receive intensive mental health treatment for a full day, approximately six days per week. Robust clinical, psychiatric, medical, and spiritual programming occurs during the day at the clinical location. In the evening, patients may either stay in supportive housing nearby or return home if they live locally. Mental health PHP is also sometimes referred to as “Day Treatment.”
