Billings Clinic Youth Partial Hospitalization Program

The Youth Partial Hospitalization Program (YPHP) is a psychiatric day hospital treatment program for youth ages 7-17 with a mental health diagnosis and contributing mental health stressors who demonstrate the need for an intensive level of care.

YPHP staff utilize an evidence based trauma-informed therapeutic approach and provide clinical support to youth with serious symptoms and functional impairments, resulting from behavioral health disorders. YPHP seeks to empower youth by providing issue identification and education on:

  • effective communication strategies
  • identification of feelings
  • anger management strategies
  • issues related to grief and loss
  • mental health diagnosis/illness
  • self-esteem enhancement
  • relationship building
  • coping skill development

Billings Clinic contracts with Yellowstone Academy/YBGR to provide the accredited education component of the program.  The standard school district schedule is not followed in YPHP. The program operates year-round, excluding weekends and major holidays. The service is covered by Medicaid and most private insurance carriers with referral from a provider.
