Abstract

It can be difficult to locate a mental health provider in Vermont. Consequently, many individuals with mental illnesses look to their primary care physicians to fill this gap. This project highlights difficulties faced by patients with PTSD and complex PTSD in Chittenden and Addison counties in finding a therapist or psychiatrist. A resource handout was created with instructions on how to find a therapist in VT and a list of practitioners in Addison and Chittenden counties who specialize in trauma. In addition, a patient information sheet that answers some questions about PTSD and complex PTSD and also provides a list of mindfulness exercises that can be used by patients while they are waiting to find a mental health practitioner.
