Vt Mental Health Dept. has new deputy commissioner

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Department of Mental Health has a new deputy commissioner.

Officials announced Thursday that Frank Reed has been appointed deputy commissioner.

Reed has worked for the department since 1999, serving most recently as interim deputy and commissioner.

Reed is a licensed clinical social worker. He has served as president of the Vermont Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers and as a behavioral health surveyor for the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.

Officials say Reed’s knowledge Vermont’s designated hospital and community services programs made him a clear choice for this position.
