Patient Testimonials

“I was in the Partial Hospital Program at Parkland for eight weeks and this program has made me see that I am not alone, that I can be myself, and that I can have friends again. I believe that the skills taught are skills that everyone suffering with a mental disorder needs. My main message to anyone suffering is you’re not alone, there’s help out there and you can do it!”

“I had a great experience at the Parkland PHP. From the first meeting I felt the staff was warm, welcoming and wanted to help. I have learned so much about the DBT and CBT skill sets, and am so grateful the staff took the extra time to help me understand the steps properly. I greatly appreciated journaling during the program as it is so therapeutic and really promotes my wellness. At PHP I felt extremely safe, both physically and mentally in group sessions. I cannot express the gratitude I have for the staff at Parkland PHP. I highly recommend Parkland PHP and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping save my life.”
