Leaders from Northeast Kingdom Human Services welcomed Sen. Bobby Starr, D-Essex-Orleans, and Lt. Governor David Zuckerman to Derby earlier this month for a roundtable discussion about the future of mental health, and access to care for veterans, specifically.
Carl King, a community member who has founded Camp Care USA, an organization to support veterans and their access to health and mental health care, also attended. He invited the politicians to the Northeast Kingdom, to take a tour of the region and have a broader discussion of mental health care. Many veterans joined in the conversation at Northeast Kingdom Human services as well.
