Preventing and Addressing Burnout during COVID-19

We must take the time to recharge for ourselves and come together as teams to take care of our colleagues. Click here for a guide to Preventing and Addressing Burnout during COVID-19.
Message from Secretary Mike Smith
We are pleased to introduce you to this dynamic organization whose mission is to improve the conditions and well-being of Vermonters and protect those who cannot protect themselves. The work we do in support of that mission touches the lives of thousands of Vermonters every day. Whether helping a family access healthcare or child care; protecting a young child from abuse; supporting youth and adults through addiction and recovery; providing essential health promotion and disease prevention services; reaching out to older Vermonters in need of at-home or nursing home assistance; enabling individuals with disabilities to have greater independence; or supporting victims and rehabilitating offenders, AHS serves Vermonters with compassion, dedication, and professionalism.
We encourage you to explore this site. You will find useful information about the Agency, our services, and learn about the robust network of community partners who play an integral role in serving the needs of Vermonters. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please call 802-241-0440.
