Day Hospital Program

Day Hospital Program at the General site

North York General Hospital’s Psychiatric Day Hospital program is a 4 week program, running every weekday from 9am-3pm.  The program provides in-person care for adults with a primary mental health condition, experiencing acute symptoms.  Patients participate in groups, from a Dialectical Behavioural Therapy-informed approach, teaching skills to improve emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance.  Patients will have individual access to a multidisciplinary team, including psychiatry, nursing, social work, occupational therapy, therapeutic recreation, dietitian, pharmacy and peer support.

Referrals – As the program is directed to individuals requiring a higher acuity of care, only internal referrals from NYGH psychiatrists are accepted at this time and can be made through the Adult Outpatient Mental Health Referral form. For any questions, please contact Central Intake at 416-756-6642.
