Do you or someone you know need some extra support?

Alyssum's two bed home is a residential crisis respite and hospital diversion service funded by the Vermont Department of Mental Health. The program is free to all eligible Vermont residents. It is peer run and designed for people who need short term support while working on recovery and discovery.

Alyssum provides a holistic, peer staffed mental health crisis respite. This alternative to hospitalization will support individuals to emerge from crisis with wisdom and personal responsibility skills for living well.


We are now open 24/7 with two beds available.  Safety measures are in place to ensure protection for staff and guests. New rules include: Guests and staff must wear masks;  Sanitizing protocols are in place; Arriving guests must stay at the program until departure; Transportation is not available at this time. Alyssum staff continue to provide phone support to all past and pending guests 24/7.  Please call or email us for more information.
