Most patients are referred to Sullivan Day Hospital once they are stable enough to be safe in the community, or have completed a stay at the Sheppard Pratt psychotic disorders unit and are ready to return to the community.

We also accept patients who are referred by a treating clinician or who may be attending a program, when the clinician feels the patient needs a more intensive level of treatment than can be provided on an outpatient basis. 

Starting Treatment

Upon admission, individuals will meet with their treating physician, complete a nursing assessment, and meet with their occupational therapist. They will also complete a psychosocial evaluation within three working days of admission to the program.
