Rutland Mental Health Services Announces New Medical Director


Dr. Timothy Houchin, whose patients know him as "Dr. Tim" , began serving as Medical Director of Rutland Mental Health Services, Inc. on October 31st. Dr. Tim received his M.D. from the University of Kentucky before spending the next six years in specialty training to become an adult, child and adolescent, and forensic psychiatrist. In fact, Dr. Tim is one of just over 200 physicians in the United States to hold board certifications in each of these three medical specialties.


Previously, Dr. Tim was an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Kentucky, had extensive experience in community psychiatry, and also founded 360 Mental Health Services and Dr. Tim now brings his holistic, 360-degree approach to diagnosing and treating mental health problems to the Rutland area. Dr. Tim will also continue teaching through his new appointment as a member of the adjunct faculty at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, where he will assist in the training of future adult as well as child psychiatrists.


“I look forward to working with the wonderful staff at Rutland Mental Health Services to provide excellence in mental health care for adults and children alike,” said Dr. Tim. “The natural beauty of this area is unsurpassed and I am very happy to be a new part of this welcoming community.”


Dr. Tim Houchin is an asset to Rutland Mental Health Services, the patients we serve, and the community. We are thrilled he and his family chose to accept this position.
