For patients in need of crisis intervention, Baystate Health provides partial hospitalization programs (PHP) for adults at three locations in the Connecticut River Valley: Greenfield, Springfield, and Westfield.

We are also the only provider of PHP care for children and adolescents in western Massachusetts.

Who Should Attend Partial Hospitalization?

If you’re looking for intensive support to create change in your life, and you feel that you need more than your current outpatient support system can provide, you might benefit from PHP.

We offer short-term, intensive psychiatric services for patients in need of crisis intervention and stabilization.

You might benefit from PHP if you:

  • Are looking for intensive support to change your life, and feel that you need more than your current outpatient support system can provide
  • Need more than outpatient therapy, but are able to care for yourself safely
  • Do not need the increased support of inpatient psychiatric treatment
  • Need a supportive transition after a brief inpatient hospitalization stay

Our goal is to:

  • Stabilize distressing symptoms
  • Increase self-understanding and improve coping strategies

Our partial hospitalization program includes:

  • Interactive groups to help you identify and work through difficult thoughts and feelings, learn healthy coping skills, and practice interacting in social and family relationships

  • Psychiatric medication evaluation and management
  • Individualized treatment and referrals to community supports
  • Family meetings to help patients and their families understand and manage psychiatric issues
