emergency protocol



During work or after hours, if you have a clinical emergency (i.e., extreme behavioral situation, risk of suicide, or bodily harm to you or another person) you can call my work phone at 802.881.9001. You can also message me through Jituzu and if you click ‘urgent’ I will be notified by text in 15 minutes that I have an urgent message.

Keep in mind that during the day I am in sessions and not available at all times. I do my best to respond to urgent/emergency situations when I receive the message. However, in the age of technology they are not always reliable and there are times I am unavailable or out of range.

If you feel the nature of the emergency cannot wait or you cannot reach me within a short timeframe (15-30 min) then please go to the nearest emergency room for evaluation, dial 911, or call the community service emergency team in your area.
