CAMH's Psychosis Coordinated Care Program (formerly Partial Hospital Program) is designed to offer a highly structured treatment program for patients experiencing acute psychotic and severe mental health issues.
It offers intensive day hospitalization for patients, who may continue the stabilization process initiated on an inpatient unit. It also functions as a diversion from hospitalization for patients who require a highly structured treatment program to prevent decompensation and inpatient admission. The PCCS is composed of an interprofessional team of psychiatrists, nurses, social worker, occupational therapists, recreationists, peer support worker, pharmacist and psychologists. Patients may 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 the PHP include comprehensive psychological, medical, medication monitoring, social, functional, family assessments, therapeutic activity groups (including CBTp and Concurrent Disorder groups), social and vocational rehabilitation. PCCS supports a Tobacco Free environment.
