Welcome to Disability Rights Vermont
Disability Rights Vermont is a statewide agency dedicated to advancing the rights of people with disabilities and mental health issues.
We support human and civil rights by investigating:
- complaints of abuse and neglect (physical or sexual assault, verbal & physical abuse, restraint and seclusion, forced treatment, and harassment.)
- complaints of violations of individual rights (the right to refuse treatment, right to privacy, access to medical records, confidentiality, etc.)
- Disability Rights Vermont is separate and independent from all state agencies, hospitals, and community mental health centers. We do not work for them. We work for you.
Disability Rights Vermont works towards a system that honors the dignity and needs of all people with disabilities.
All communication with us is confidential.
