The Young Child Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is designed to support young children, ages 5-10, who are experiencing anxiety, depression, and irritability that is impacting their functioning throughout the day. These children may have difficulties regulating their behaviors, emotions, and reactions leading to outbursts at home, school, and in extracurricular activities. This program is appropriate for children requiring more than individual outpatient care and who do not need higher levels of care, such as hospitalization. Patients in this program attend daily, Monday-Friday.
The Young Child Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) treats children struggling with mood and anxiety disorders that require more intensive and wrap-around treatment than would be available in outpatient settings and also do not require a higher level of care such as PHP or hospitalization. The goal of this program is to support children in maintaining their stability and while attending school and continuing to learn coping skills.
