Story Behind the Curve

The Mental Health (MH) Caseload report includes anyone identified as needing to be followed by a MH clinician due to MH medications, prior MH history, or current MH symptoms. The VT DOC healthcare contractor through licensed providers makes the medical determinations for who meets the criteria for being on the mental health caseload. 

In FY22 (July 2021-June 2022), there was a monthly average of 881 patients on the mental health caseload. This average number of patients on a mental health caseload represents 76% of the average total in-state incarcerated population in FY22. 

*For February and March 2022, the data from one facility was missing, but was estimated using data reported from other facilities and standard deviation.


The DOC partners with a Health Services Contractor to perform the work indicated on this performance measure. Currently, the health services data are provided through the Electronic Health Record (EHR) Correctek.
