Partial Hospitalization Program for Mental Health
What is a Mental Health PHP?
Many people are familiar with the partial hospitalization program level of care for addiction. Far fewer are aware that mental health treatment is also available at the PHP level of care. Now you may be wondering, how do I know if I need a mental health PHP? While that is a deeply personal question, many people are referred to a partial hospitalization program by a therapist. A PHP for mental health is ideal for a person who is struggling with a mental health disorder that requires more treatment than conventional outpatient treatment meetings once a week can provide.
If you or someone you care about is living with depression, anxiety, PTSD, this type of program can help. Sometimes people with depression or anxiety may see a therapist 1-4 times a month for years and make very little, if any, progress with their condition. Others make progress in the beginning, but ‘plateau’ after a few months or years. Both of these are scenarios where a PHP for depression or another mental health disorder can help. Even if you have been in counseling or therapy for years, entering a partial hospitalization program can lead to breakthroughs and significant new improvement in your condition.
The Levels of Mental Health Treatment at Transformations Care:
- Partial Hospitalization Program for Mental Health (PHP)
- Intensive Outpatient Program for Mental Health (IOP)
- Outpatient Therapy (either in person or remote, usually 1x week)
How Does a Mental Health Partial Hospitalization Program Work?
A mental health Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is the level of care that is one step down in intensity from inpatient mental health treatment. Individual and group therapy and other treatments found at an inpatient MH program are also offered in a PHP for mental health. At the PHP level, clients receive at least 6 hours of mental health treatment 5 days a week, so it’s a full day of treatment. The biggest difference from inpatient mental health treatment is that clients do not stay in a medical facility overnight. Most clients in a Partial Hospitalization Program usually live home if they are local or may opt to retire to supportive housing in the evening after the treatment day is over.
If they are from out of town or need to be away from people, places and things for a while, the supportive housing choice is also an attractive options. In summary, Transformations Care’s Partial Hospitalization Program for mental health includes many of the features of inpatient mental health treatment, except clients do not sleep in a clinical facility with 24-hour medical staff. This can make mental health PHP an attractive choice for those who need a higher level of care to improve their mental health, but do not require 24-hour medical supervision.

Is a Mental Health PHP Right for Me or My Loved One?
How do you know if a mental health PHP is the right choice for you or the person you love? Fortunately, this isn’t something you need to decide alone. First of all, partial hospitalization programs for mental health aren’t meant to be a standalone option. You don’t have to decide between a PHP or an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), for example. It’s possible to do both.
The other factor which can make your decision much easier is our thorough mental health screening and assessment. When you call Transformations Care to seek treatment for depression, anxiety or any other mental health condition, we conduct a screening over the phone. Based upon our assessment, we will make a recommendation for treatment. This eases much of the burden for most people by allowing them to make an informed decision.
How Long is the Mental Health Treatment Program?
The length of stay at our Los Angeles mental health treatment center varies. How long someone attends the program depends on how much help they need and how much time they can commit to their mental health care. Naturally, we recommend you follow the suggestions of our clinicians when it comes to this, but we can accommodate people with busy lives and hectic schedules too. The most important thing is that you don’t deny yourself or your loved one the mental health help they need and deserve. We suggest keeping an open mind and remember you can’t get “too much help” for a problem.
No one ever went to depression treatment in LA and wished they had gotten less help and less therapy. But, people have decided to get less help than they really needed, or even left against medical advice (AMA) only to regret it later. Your insurance company also has some say in your length of stay too, of course, but part of our job is to go to bat with them for you and we are very good at that. We will make the case for continued treatment for you each week if we think it’s what’s best for you and you’re willing. We will always recommend a length of stay that meets your needs and fits your means. Ultimately the decision is up to you how long to stay (as long as your insurance is on board).
Length of Stay at our Mental Health Program
Some patients who begin mental health PHP with us and stay with us through IOP and outpatient may get as many as 90 days of treatment in total. Other people are closer to a month or a few weeks. Remember the length of stay in mental health treatment is one of the biggest factors in determining outcomes. Bottom line: People who stay in treatment longer and finish the program make more progress. Remember that when weighing any decisions about how long you or your loved one should remain in treatment. We just ask that you keep an open mind, weigh the facts and consider how your decision could affect your recovery and what it will mean to the people you love.
