The Mental Health Day Treatment Program is a full-time, six week intensive group psychotherapy program. The program is for individuals with mental illness who also have long-standing problems relating with others and regulating emotions.

It is a partial hospitalization program. This means it is a specialty program that offers comprehensive treatment to targeted populations without requiring a hospital bed for overnight stay for an ongoing period. Patients live at home and attend the program daily.

Please note: Arrangements can be made for patients from outside the area to stay at Point Pleasant Lodge. This is a privately owned and operated, not-for-profit specialty hotel for people undertaking medical travel in the Halifax area. It is within walking distance of the program. There is a process to have accommodation costs covered by the Department of Health and Wellness during the six week treatment process. The Case Coordinator will discuss this when arranging treatment.

The program staff is made up of a group of health care professionals including psychiatry, psychology, social work, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, and nursing.

During the program, staff will work with you and your referring doctor or clinician, to arrange follow-up treatment and care.
