VT Association For Mental Health Throws Support To VSEA Plan To Build New VSH In Central VT

In a press conference this morning at the State House, VAMH’s Executive Director Ken Libertoff announced his group’s frustration with the glacial pace of the State’s "Futures Project" as well as the ongoing cutting of funds for the community-based treatment that was intended to reduce the VSH’s average daily census. Liebetoff said:

"It is the recommendation of the VAMH that Vermont consider building a new, state-of-the-art State Hospital in central Vermont; one that is clinically solid, comfortable for patients and with an environment that promotes both quality treatment and recovery."
