These services include individual, group and family counseling in addition to a variety of supports that promote children’s stability in the communities, schools, and homes.

Adult Mental Health
We provide a range of prevention and intervention services, such as counseling, to help individuals, families and groups cope during times of stress and crisis, as well as to address emotional and behavioral difficulties. For adults with serious mental illness, we provide an array of therapeutic, day, and residential services to adults with severe and persistent mental illness and their families. These services promote community, independence and recovery to minimize the need for inpatient and custodial care.
We are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in every community in Vermont. Services are intensive and time-limited, focused on resolving or stabilizing adults, families and children who are in acute mental health crisis.
