Outpatient mental health care
Outpatient mental health care refers to intensive behavioral health services that do not require an overnight hospital stay. Outpatient care offers the benefits of psychological treatment while also allowing you to return home each day.

About our outpatient mental healthcare programs
These programs are appropriate for anyone experiencing a degree of emotional distress that cannot be sufficiently treated through traditional outpatient care.
Our outpatient behavioral health services include several different programs that consist of weekly group therapy sessions and medication management from licensed mental health professionals.
Like most outpatient treatment programs, you will return home after each session. However, participating in our PHP requires a greater time commitment compared to our IOPs.
If you are interested in learning more about our outpatient services, you can schedule an assessment, available Monday through Friday, by calling us at (904) 639-8654.
During an assessment, you will be asked about your condition and goals to determine if our outpatient program is the best treatment option for you. Assessments typically take about 60 minutes.
Group therapy sessions
In addition to addressing your individualized needs as related to your primary mental health condition, our mental health therapists use group sessions to focus on topics such as:
- Anger management
- Building self-worth
- Developing self-awareness
- Developing self-compassion
- Enhancing communication skills
- Improving interpersonal skills
- Mindfulness techniques
- Stress management
Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)
Our IOPs use a group therapy framework designed to help you face, cope with and grow from adversity in a safe, warm and responsive environment. The program uses a combination of medical and clinical support to help you develop coping skills and insights to optimize their quality of life.
Our IOP offers treatment for:
- Mental health track
- Women's issues
Patients who participate in our IOP engage in three to four group sessions per day. The average length of treatment spans four to six weeks.
For information about our behavioral health services, call (904) 639-8654.
Partial hospitalization program (PHP)
The PHP offers a higher level of care that provides daily access to safe, structured behavioral health treatment five days a week. This is a full-time counseling program to help people who need more support and structure than is offered in our IOPs but who still do not require 24-hour clinical supervision.
Our PHP operates Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 2:30pm with a light lunch provided daily.
People participating in our PHP engage in five group therapy sessions per day. Most people participate in the program for five to 10 days.
Our aftercare support group
Our hospital's outpatient services provide access to our Aftercare Support Group.
Our group is free to attend and helps you share a common, safe space to discuss your mental health journey. The group meets every Wednesday from 7:00pm to 8:30pm.
To learn more about this support group, you can call us at (904) 639-8654.
