Receiving Center

The UNI Receiving Center (RC) is an innovative program providing a short-term, secure crisis center for up to 23 hours. The RC is designed to offer a safe, supportive and welcoming environment to both voluntary and involuntary individuals. It recognizes each person as a guest and provides the critical time needed to work through his or her crisis.

The center features the “Living Room” model including peer support and clinical staff. Treatments include therapeutic crisis management, strengthbased assessment utilizing peer specialists, health screenings to determine health-care needs, assessment by a licensed mental health professional, medication intervention, safety, security and assistance in discharge planning. The RC acts as the primary receiving facility for law enforcement officers and EMS personnel in Salt Lake County.
