COA Howard Center Mental Health Urgent Care


This proposal is the product of a growing partnership between Howard Center, the Community Health Centers and the University of Vermont Medical Center. Together with engaged partners in the community such as Pathways Vermont, we are united by a shared understanding that hospital emergency departments (“EDs”) are not suited to the needs of individuals experiencing a mental health crisis and that any solution we propose needs to account for parity, the full system of care and collaboration between our organizations.
