Many youths who are in a behavioral or mental health crisis end up in Hospital Emergency Departments
In reviewing available data, United Counseling Service (UCS), the state’s designated agency for Bennington County, and the Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) discovered that in the fourth quarter of 2018, 294 child and adolescent crisis assessments were completed in the SVMC Emergency Department. Tragically, 82% of all children and adolescents who presented in the ED in a crisis were discharged home without a treatment plan with the average length of stay being 20 hours.
