Your mental health is just as important to your overall well being as your physical health. Here's information on a range of mental health topics, plus ideas on how to cope when your life hits an emotional bump.
All of us have needed help with a difficult situation at one time or another in our lives. It's not always possible to solve tough issues alone. Professional help from the Partial Hospitalization Program at Southside Behavioral Health Services can assist you as you begin to put your life back in order.
What is Partial Hospitalization?
Patients receive services during the day and go home in the afternoon. This decreases the need for an inpatient hospitalization. The program can also be used as a transitional step between inpatient and outpatient programs.
The Partial Hospitalization Program includes therapy, education, and medication management. The goals of treatment are different for each patient. The length of treatment also varies, but most importantly, the Program is designed to meet your individual needs.
What Kind of Services Will I Receive?
The Partial Program will help you learn how to cope with life's pressures and manage problems as they arise. You will learn about your symptoms as well as interact with others to develop effective coping skills. The program and staff will provide support in:
- Regaining hope
- Facing challenges
- Making positive choices
- Making and reaching goals
- Coping with stress
- Improving relationships
- Solving problems
Each patient spends time learning how to reach his/her individual goals for treatment. Treatment services may include one or all of the following:
- Group Therapy
- Therapeutic Activity
- Medication Management
- Special Focus Groups
- Individual Therapy
- Family Therapy
The Partial Hospitalization Program operates daily, Monday through Friday, from 9:15am to 3:15pm.
How Do I Get Help?
If you or someone you know needs help, call between the hours of 9:00am and 4:30pm, Monday through Friday, to schedule a free assessment. A nurse or therapist will talk with you and help you determine the best treatment services to meet your needs. A physician, counselor, clergy, or family member can also call to refer a patient to the program.
