Partial Hospitalization at Lightfully Teen

Being in a hospital facility 24/7 isn’t fun for anyone, especially if you’re a teen who craves the comfort of their bedroom. When you’re struggling with severe mental health disorder symptoms, or you’ve had a mental health crisis, there are a few different treatment approaches that can be explored. Outpatient programs, like Partial Hospitalization, can help provide the support that you need while allowing you to return home after treatment programs each day.

Partial Hospitalization is a type of outpatient treatment that allows you to receive a high level of mental health care and support to help manage severe mental health disorder symptoms. But after a full day of programs, you can implement your newly learned behavioral skills and incorporate coping mechanisms into your home life and relationships.

What Is Partial Hospitalization?

A Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP, is the highest level of care that you can receive in an outpatient facility, as it’s one step below Residential Treatment. It’s for teens who don’t pose an immediate risk to themselves or others, but are still struggling to function on a daily basis due to their mental health disorder.

A PHP is often used as a transitional stage following a mental health crisis. It allows you to improve while boosting the confidence in your abilities by having freedom at home after your programs. The benefits of Partial Hospitalization include:

  • Continuous support and supervision, which reduces the risk of mental health crisis
  • Gaining skills that can be immediately implemented into your daily routine
  • Structured schedule in a safe environment
  • Moderate medication support
