CAMH's Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is designed to offer a highly structured treatment program for clients experiencing acute psychotic and severe mental health issues.
It offers an intensive acute care day hospitalization for clients, who continue the stabilization process initiated on an inpatient unit. It also functions as a diversion from hospitalization for clients who require a highly structured treatment program to prevent decompensation and admission. PHP is composed of an interprofessional team of psychiatrists, nurses, social worker, occupational therapists, recreationists, peer support worker, pharmacist and psychologists. Clients receive individualized, recovery focused, goal-oriented treatment to facilitate stabilization of symptoms in a less restrictive, non-institutional environment. The menu of services offered by PHP include comprehensive psychological, medical, medication monitoring, social, functional, family assessments, therapeutic activity groups (including CBT and Concurrent Disorder groups), social and vocational rehabilitation. PHP supports a Tobacco Free environment.
