Mary Moulton has served as the executive director of Washington County Mental Health Services since 2013. Ms. Moulton began her career at Washington County Mental Health in 1990 as an emergency services clinician on the mobile crisis team. She became director of intensive care services in 2005 and chief of operations in 2010 when she worked with multiple programs throughout the agency.
Following the destruction caused by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011, Mary was granted a leave by the Board of Directors to serve at the request of the State of Vermont as the deputy commissioner, and then commissioner of the Department of Mental Health. Her primary directive was to work with teams in all designated agencies to implement Act 79, also known as Vermont’s mental health reform act. As part of that reform, Mary was instrumental in developing law enforcement and crisis team training and remains actively involved in the continuing development of Team Two mental health response training today.
She has also been the coordinator of Vermont’s Behavioral Health Disaster Response Team, training 500 responders and creating a system for behavioral health response in the event of disaster. Mary received her master’s degree in public administration from Norwich University in 2011 and currently resides in Moretown, Vermont.
