MONTPELIER ó The centerpiece of Vermontís newly designed mental health system is up for a public hearing this coming week.
Closure of the old Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury by flooding from Tropical Storm Irene forced the state to come with a new plan to care for the mentally ill.
Itís been developing a system that would include small psychiatric units in several different parts of the state, plus a 25-bed facility in Berlin.
The Berlin facility now is working on getting a permit called a certificate of need from the state Department of Financial Regulation.
DFR will conduct a hearing on the application Friday at 1:30 p.m. in the third floor conference room of 89 Main Street in Montpelier.MORE IN Vermont NewsState Police scuba divers and searchers drilled holes in the ice of the frozen Otter Creek in...
