Adult Mental Health
HowardCenter Crisis Services provide support for individuals—and their family members or friends—who are experiencing a mental health crisis and need immediate assistance, day or night. If you need information concerning a substance abuse crisis, please call ACT 1 at 802.488.6425.
ASSIST is a six-bed crisis stabilization and hospital diversion program for any Chittenden County resident who is experiencing a psychiatric crisis. We provide crisis respite to help people with psychiatric disabilities remain in the community and divert admissions to inpatient care. We also assist clients who are leaving an inpatient setting to transition back to the community.
Mobile Crisis Team
Mobile Crisis Team is a 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week program. It provides immediate response to requests from Chittenden County residents, 18 and older, and their support systems. Any person who is concerned about a mental health issue may call the Crisis Hotline for a consultation with a mental health professional. For more information, please call 802.488.6400.
