📣Boosting this! Check out this wonderful new website from Washington County Mental Health Services! Well done!It took a bit of time and a great deal of collaboration to build our new website and it’s done!

It’s the same URL, www.wcmhs.org, however we think you’ll agree the new site better represents the empathy, compassion and quality of care the Agency provides to those we serve. And it captures all programs within each division, the depth and breadth of the Agency, while making use of Internet usage habits.

We encourage you to visit the site, “test drive it,” and let us know if you find any bugs or other issues; we expect there will be some given the magnitude and complexity of site that we’re confident you’ll find more easily navigable.

We hope you’ll find the new website useful in providing and getting information.

Please direct any issues found to John Caceres at [email protected]

Enjoy and have fun!

What We Do

For Children

Child development is a process that involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes.

For Youth

Positive youth development services engage young people in intentional, productive, and constructive ways, while recognizing and enhancing their strengths.

For Families

All families should have access to economic and parenting supports to ensure all children have nurturing and stable relationships with caring adults.

Take Action

Every year, Vermont saves $2,131,041 when each of Vermont’s 15 Parent Child Centers prevents:

  • One woman from entering a correctional facility;
  • One teen pregnancy.
  • One child from needing foster care placement; and
  • One mother and child from requiring public assistance.

Help children thrive

2,865 individuals served in Central Vermont from July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021
