Cambridge Medical Center opened two new mental health services at the hospital: a Partial Hospitalization Program and an Adult Mental Health Outpatient Program. Both programs opened on April 15.
The Adult Partial Hospitalization Program is an option for patients when they need short-term intensive care for a mental health condition. The three-week program is directed by a psychiatric provider in a group therapy environment to help prevent and reduce hospitalization and support patients as they live at home.
The Adult Mental Health Outpatient Program is an option for patients when they need concentrated support for a mental health condition. The program offers support to overcome obstacles that interfere with daily living, stabilize mood and improve participants’ mental health to live their best life. The day treatment program offers customized services and flexible scheduling.
These are the first programs of their type to be available in the area outside the Twin Cities.
Both programs will help adults stay out of the hospital and get the intensive treatment they need and still be able stay at home, without having to travel long distances for services.
