PADDLEPOWER is an adventure you'll never forget!

Please join us on August 20 & 21 for PADDLEPOWER 2016 and help raise awareness about depression and suicide, public health problems that CAN be solved. Money raised through PADDLEPOWER supports West Central Behavioral Health's emergency mental health services, including a 24-hour crisis hotline and rapid response counseling for individuals and organizations throughout a broad region including Sullivan and southern Grafton counties.

PADDLEPOWER is a multi-faceted event to raise money for West Central Behavioral Health’s Emergency Services Program and suicide prevention efforts. Participants may join us for a two-day canoe/kayak trip down the Connecticut River, or for a Sunday morning hike on the Hazen Trail, beginning at Kilowatt Park in Wilder, VT. Anyone can participate as an individual, a member of a team, a volunteer, or a sponsor. For the past fourteen years, WEST CENTRAL BEHAVIORAL HEALTH has hosted this event to draw awareness to the problem of suicide, and to raise funds to support suicide prevention programs. Our goal is to bring the issue of suicide into the light. Join us for a wonderful experience for you and your community.

Whether you would like to volunteer for one of many important tasks, paddle down the river with a team of friends, or hike the Hazen Trail, please register online to participate in PADDLEPOWER 2016, on August 20 and 21.
