Child Partial Hospitalization Program

Children and adolescents from ages 5 to 18 who have emotional, behavioral, or psychiatric difficulties may benefit from our Child Partial Hospitalization Program. We provide compassionate, intensive crisis intervention and stabilization through talk therapy and activities aimed at improving emotional well-being.

The program can either provide an alternative to full hospitalization for children and adolescents, or serve as a transition from inpatient care to less intensive outpatient care. The goal is to improve their level of functioning while maintaining important family and community connections.


Our team of experts works closely with families, schools, community clinicians, and involved agencies to help children and adolescents function with minimal disruptions to their life:

  • Children typically participate in the program for a week or two.
  • Children and adolescents attend the Partial Hospitalization Program five days a week, from 8:50 am to 2 pm.
  • Children continue to live at home while they participate in our program.
  • Families are assigned a case manager who coordinates their child’s care and is their primary contact.
  • The multidisciplinary care team includes child psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, mental health counselors, and teachers.


Our team members focus on helping your child learn skills to:

  • Manage their emotions
  • Improve their relationships
  • Meet academic expectations
  • Treatment is tailored to your child’s needs and includes:
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Group psychotherapy
  • Family meetings
  • Individual therapy
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Creative arts group
  • Academic/tutorial classrooms
