ENGAGE ME PHP: MENTAL HEALTH
FOCUSED ON AGES 13-17
Engage Me PHP is our partial hospitalization program for teens struggling with managing symptoms of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-injurious behaviors or other mood disorders that are best treated in a structured full-day setting. The primary goal of our day program is to help each of our teens and their families establish a safe and supportive environment in both the home and the school setting. Our day program is often a great transition for a teen moving from an inpatient setting, or when it is determined to be most beneficial for the teen to stay in the home setting while seeking treatment. Teens will receive daily group therapy, daily school studies, weekly family therapy sessions, and community activities.
