Partial Hospitalization Program

The Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at PAHrtners offers therapeutic supports and skill training to Deaf adults with a mental health diagnosis.  Individuals with a mental health diagnosis and behavioral health challenges and/or intellectual disabilities are also served.

The day treatment program provides a structured setting in which individuals can build important daily living skills.  Group therapy and psychoeducational sessions focus on:

• Anger Management
• Stress Control
• Conflict Resolution
• Coping Techniques
• Symptom Management
• Problem Solving
• Emotion Expression
• Societal Integration

In addition, the program offers communication and language development in American Sign Language, self-advocacy skills, and socialization skills.

Groups are structured to match the individual’s communication, behavioral health treatment needs, and learning styles. Several groups run concurrently throughout the day to offer variety and options for attendees.

Individuals participating in the program have a peer group they can relate to, and opportunities to develop interpersonal relationships. Program participants receive the ongoing support necessary to help them reach their full potential.

The Partial Hospitalization Program uses the recovery model and cognitive behavioral therapy as the foundation for treatment.  Due to the many barriers Deaf individuals face, the instillation of hope is a core component of the program.


PAHrtners Partial Hospitalization Program is CARF accredited.
