At Centerpoint, it is common for many people to request services in the midst of a personal or family crisis. And through our work, we support many faced with crises in their lives.
To reach Centerpoint’s front office, during weekday business hours, please call 802-488-7711.
While Centerpoint provides many supports for families faced with challenges, we do not directly provide emergency crisis response services. This type of crisis service, available 24 hours a day every day of the year, is a program of your local community mental health center. In Chittenden County, Vermont, this type of service is provided by one of Centerpoint’s affiliated agencies, the Howard Center.
Crisis intervention and response for children, teens, and parents is provided by Howard Center’s First Call for Children and Families.
Those in need of text telephone services (TTY) can reach First Call at 802-488-6732.
Language interpreter services are also available.
Intervention and support for adults experiencing a mental health crisis is provided by Howard Center’s Adult Crisis Service.
For adults struggling with a drug or alcohol crisis, or in need of detoxification services, Howard Center provides the Alcohol Crisis Team – ACT 1/Bridge Program.
Outside of Chittenden County, you may contact your local Community Mental Health Center or access additional resources through the United Ways’ VT 2-1-1 information by dialing 211 from any Vermont telephone or clicking on www.vermont211.org.
