Consumer Advisory Council

Consideration of the patient perspective is central to the development of excellent care. The Retreat's Consumer Advisory Council is composed of consumers and advocates whose main purpose is to ensure that our patients' voices are heard. Members of the Council include representatives from Disability Rights Vermont (DRVT), Vermont Psychiatric Survivors, the National Association on Mental Illness, and former patients and family members. The goal of the council is to address consumer concerns, advise the hospital on policy development, and fully represent consumers' voices in the Retreat's design of care. For more information about our Consumer Advisory Council please contact us at 802-258-6118.
