Morrisville psychiatric facility set to open

MORRISVILLE — Vermont’s newest psychiatric facility is ready to take patients.
Green Mountain Psychiatric Care Center is set to open and be ready to receive patients on Wednesday.
The facility represents part of the state’s efforts to reorganize its mental health system following Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, which flooded and forced the closing of the Vermont State Hospital in Waterbury.
The state also is going ahead with plans to build a 25-bed psychiatric hospital in Berlin and expand or create smaller facilities around Vermont.

    Mental health is such a tough thing to even comprehend for most people. Yeah the mental health system needs to be looked at, but not just in the USA, in the UK too. 
    I’m currently writing a book ( there’s a little blurb here ) that is hopefully set to inspire, motivate and educate when it comes to mental health illnesses. I think the first step is to stop making it such a massive taboo subject! Half of the people I know, even friends of mine, wouldn’t share a single link to do with my book or project because they don’t want to be tarred with the same brush. It’s such a shame that people don’t realise the implications.
