Our program currently only offers an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) level of care. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is currently not accepting referrals. We anticipate the PHP will return in the Winter of 2022-2023. Due to COVID, we are operating via Telehealth/Televisits only. Please call our office to confirm any changes related to our virtual program.
The Perinatal IOP/PHP offers comprehensive mental health care to birthing persons who are either pregnant or within 1 year of delivery and are suffering from severe mental illness that is in need of a high levels of care. Our IOP program offers groups, individual psychotherapy, and medication evaluation and management to perinatal patients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. The program is approximately 3-4 hours each day, and most patients remain in the IOP program for 6-8 weeks. The capacity of our program is based on provider availability, and often ranges between 4 and 6 patients.
The care we provide is multidisciplinary – meaning that we work as a team to help our patients move towards their mental health goals. The team includes psychiatrists, social workers, nursing, and psychologists. Our programming helps our patients learn about various medication options for their mental health needs, learn coping skills for managing emotions, gain support from other new parents, work on developing a good social support network, and implement strategies to improve overall mind-body wellness.
