ROAD TO A
Mental Health America of Utah is a place where individuals and families can come for resources, support, and social connection.
WHAT WE DO
We provide peer support and outreach for individuals and families affected by mental illness. We also offer education, support and advocacy – in person and virtually.
Our programs and activities are designed by peers for peers. We work together to help each other reach our goals and fulfill our potential. We believe that as persons who have experience living with and recovering from mental illness we are in the best position to offer support to others who are on a similar journey. We invite you to join us in bringing about positive change!
We're changing the delivery of mental health care
We believe in peer support!
We provide peer support services to all Utahns! We have a drop-in center (opening soon) located in Salt Lake City where we provide peer support and group activities. We also connect virtually to anyone in need throughout the State.
We also provide peer support to vulnerable and marginalized populations. We currently have a homeless peer support outreach program in Salt Lake County and we do outreach and peer support for individuals dealing with trauma from polygamy culture in Southern Utah.
Collectively We Choose To Change The Narrative
We are commonly referred to as the “mentally ill” or our diagnosis rather than our names. MHA UTAH believes that the presumption that we do not know what is in our own best interest consigns us to lives emptied of quality, vitality and dignity. community.
We’re looking for people who want to be part of a network of peers, mental health advocates, or financially support our community.
