Psychiatric Day Hospital Program

The Day Hospital Program (DH Program) is a short term stabilization program for patients experiencing acute, severe mental health issues. It is an alternative option for patients that would otherwise be admitted to an inpatient unit or require crisis services.

The DH Program is 4 weeks in duration, operating from Monday to Friday during business hours. The DH Program is an intensive program predominantly focused on group-based skill development, combined with opportunities for individual and supported skills integration. Patients develop and work towards specific goals throughout the program, with primary support from a therapist, and other multidisciplinary team members as required.
