The Vermont Association for Mental Health & Addiction Recovery, is a statewide advocacy and education organization that supports all paths to recovery from addiction and mental health conditions.
Vermont is a state where people with addictions and/or mental health conditions can achieve long-term recovery supported by a system that cares for the whole person.
For more than 70 years, the Vermont Association for Mental Health and Addiction Recovery has worked to promote “mental wellness” in Vermont.
The organization has expanded its vision and increased production in areas ranging from public educational activities, conferences and seminars, to provision of referral services and the dissemination of timely and relevant published materials. More dramatically, the Association has made a concentrated effort to become a true citizen’s voice, a public and pronounced voice, on all critical mental and behavioral health issues.
