I've never been hospitalized here, nor have I known anyone who has been. However, for about a month, I was in outpatient partial hospitalization here, for adult psychotherapy, toward the beginning of this year. It was a very eye-opening experience.

Groups were held throughout the day, mostly verbal, where we would share what was on our mind, what we needed help with, and then we would get feedback, not just from our group leaders, who were psychologists, but from our fellow patients. Everybody had a different background. I was a depressive patient with PTSD amongst many manic-depressive patients, so it was strange, yet very helpful to get pointers from people who were not the same as me, but who could clearly understand my situations.

The psychiatrists came daily or three times a week, depending on who you saw. Mine was a daily, and she was great. I actually wished I could see her on an outpatient basis, but unfortunately, she was for inpatients only.

The skills and coping mechanisms I learned there I am still using now, and I go back to those ideas and pointers from both the staff and my fellow patients to help me through my days.

My insurance, Aetna, did cover it, however they did not cover all of the visits by the psychiatrist, so a little warning there. Of course it all depends on your plan and amount of coverage.

The meals were provided up to 4.50, which could cover a bit, but not always all, if you were up for some variety in the cafeteria. We got an hour and a half for lunch, which for me was too much. But I just waited around upstairs, in the program area, which was fine.

All in all, this is a wonderful program for those needing to transition from hospital to the real world.

PROS: lots of sharing, plenty of staff to help, daily visits with psychiatrist
CONS: south minneapolis (bad area), lunch time a bit too long, not all ins. cover
