Acute Care

To address the acute mental health needs of children, Saint Clare’s provides:

Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Program (CAPHP)

The Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Program is a short-term program serving adolescents, aged 12 to 17 years, in need of an intensive, highly structured therapy program to help them and their families manage a serious behavioral, emotional, or psychiatric crisis. This program is designed to either prevent admission to an inpatient facility, or to transition young people recently discharged from psychiatric inpatient units back into their schools, community and family. The program is available Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and is staffed by board certified psychologists, clinicians, behavioral health counselors and a registered nurse.

The Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Program frequently accommodates young people who are transitioning back to their schools or communities with Intensive Outpatient Program hours after they have completed their Partial Hospital Program. These individuals may attend the program for three hours per day, up to five days a week.

For more information on the Child/Adolescent Partial Hospital Program, please call 973-299-5436.
