Shumlin names new Vt. mental health commissioner

Posted: Updated:

Vermont has a new mental health commissioner-- Paul Dupre of Barre.

Dupre currently runs Washington County Mental Health Services. He's also a former mayor of Barre.

Dupre takes the reins as the state mental health system turns a corner in its recovery from Tropical Storm Irene. The state hospital was destroyed and patients were displaced. But now work has begun on a new hospital in Berlin and other hospitals are caring for more mental health patients as part of the state's new community-based model of care.
