Partial Hospital Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program
Adult Mental Health Services
The Partial Hospitalization Program – Adult Mental Health Services at Aurora Psychiatric Hospital is built upon the belief that recovery from mental health problems can be fostered through a comprehensive approach to one's psychological and social needs. We offer an evidence-based approach that provides the hope, healing, empowerment and connection that makes recovery possible.

Partial hospitalization
At Aurora Psychiatric Hospital, we recognize that each person has specific clinical and social needs. We offer programming designed to help patients with the specific issues and problems affecting their lives. Whether transitioning from an inpatient stay or being referred from an outpatient setting, we offer partial hospitalization that provides our clients with the structure, support and education necessary to help them overcome their behavioral health issues. We provide specialized treatment for many behavioral health problems, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, thought disorders, as well as co-occurring disorders.

The Partial Hospitalization Program provides intensive treatment six days per week, from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Programming uses cognitive behavioral therapy to develop better coping mechanisms, improve management of symptoms, and promote healthy-living skills. This comprehensive approach to patient care incorporates group education and therapy, individual and family therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and medication management. This multidisciplinary team consists of psychiatrists, nurses, psychotherapists and case managers.

What is recovery?
Recovery is a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with mental health and substance abuse problems to live a meaningful life in a community of his or her choice, while striving to achieve full potential.
