BENNINGTON COUNTY — United Counseling Service of Bennington County (UCS) recently implemented an enhanced community-based mobile crisis program as part of a statewide initiative to respond to the increased need for mental health and substance use intervention across the county and state. At the core of the program is a two-person, in-person response available around the clock, reducing the need for people in mental health and substance use emergencies to access local Emergency Rooms and providing them with a direct line to immediate help.
