Mental health levels of care

Inpatient Psychiatric Care

The Inpatient Psychiatric Unit at Bryn Mawr Hospital provides care for adults (age 18 and older) struggling with mood, anxiety and thought disorders, co-occurring substance abuse or addiction, and other psychiatric conditions. Treatment begins with comprehensive psychiatric and physical evaluations, then a personalized program is developed.

Partial Hospitalization Program

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP) are outpatient programs structured and designed for those needing a higher level of care but who do not require 24-hour inpatient care. PHPs are short-term, full-day treatment designed to build skills and gain stability. 

Intensive Outpatient Program

Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) provide the structure and frequency found in inpatient programs, but do not require 24-hour inpatient care. IOPs are designed for those in need of more support than once-weekly therapy. In a supportive environment that includes individual treatment planning, our team helps patients develop skills, attitudes and behaviors for living a healthy life.

Outpatient Group Services

Outpatient group services allow individuals with mental health diagnoses to get care without having to be admitted to a hospital or treatment facility. It includes services like counseling, group therapy, medical consultations or psychiatry during regularly scheduled sessions. We offer this option for those who don’t need 24/7 care.

Outpatient Psychotherapy Services

Main Line HealthCare Behavioral Health Services is a practice located on Bryn Mawr Hospital’s campus that providers compassionate psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, to address behavioral health needs. Offerings at this practice include psychotherapy and assessments for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Our trained experts apply a variety of evidence-based techniques, and establish targeted treatment goals, to help patients find relief from distress, identify solutions to alleviate specific issues and modify behaviors to achieve better outcomes.

Mental Health Care designed for Women by Women

The Women’s Emotional Wellness Center (WEWC) began providing outpatient mental health services to women before, during and after pregnancy and over the past decade, has evolved to supporting women over their lifespan. The team offers outpatient mental health therapy and psychiatric serves to parenting women and their families. WEWC also offers a variety of outpatient psychotherapy group services, an intensive outpatient program and a partial hospitalization program for female patients ages 18 and older. Common issues addressed include depression, anxiety and mood issues; trauma; life transitions, parenting challenges, and grief and loss; and family stressors.

Integrated Behavioral Health

Integrated behavioral health is a patient care model where psychologists and therapists treat mental health concerns as part of the care team within select primary care physician’s practice, obstetrics and gynecological care practice and two pain management practices. Current patients of these practices have direct access to on-site clinicians who specialize in treating mild to moderate depression, anxiety, grief, coping with chronic conditions and additional concerns.

Safe spaces for LGBTQ+ patients

We aim to cultivate an environment where our LGBTQ+ neighbors feel comfortable and safe sharing their experiences and true selves. It is our hope that through more personalized group and individual counseling services, the needs specific to the LGBTQ+ community can be addressed in an affirming, sensitive and informed manner.
