The State of Mental Health in Utah

Utah currently ranks 47th in the United States for mental healthcare. The Utah Department of Human Services (UDHS), is responsible for improving their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the resources and services necessary to build resilience in their communities. UDHS determines the standard of care that all Utah residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist.

Currently, the UDHS has a plan that consists of five initiatives. The first initiative is geared towards prevention, and slowing the number of cases of mental health illness. The second initiative is to reduce the number of suicides to zero. Thirdly, UDHS is working towards building resilience through recovery. Next, the focus shifts to providing better care to youth and adolescents. Finally, UDHS is working on establishing a strong integrative care model, while improving on accessibility in all phases of mental illness, from prevention, to treatment and recovery. For these initiatives to gain traction, UDHS ensures that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state. To learn more about UDHS’s strategic plan, visit this link.
