Utah's Best Mental Health Care


In November of 2019, the Huntsman family made a generous donation of $150 million to create the Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI). As part of a world-renowned academic health system, HMHI provides comprehensive mental health services and psychiatric care. 

HMHI’s hospital facility (previously the University Neuropsychiatric Institute) offers a safe and healing environment and exceptional patient care throughout the Salt Lake Valley.

Our researchers are a pioneering force in expanding the understanding of complex functions of the brain. Innovation has come from brain imaging and genetic studies related to addiction, suicide prevention, depression, and other disorders.

HMHI’s education program through the School of Medicine boasts highly competitive general psychiatry and triple-board residency programs, bringing the nation’s best clinicians to Utah.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

To celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, Huntsman Mental Health Institute is hosting a series of “Community Conversations” with HMHI experts to share information, discuss mental health treatment and care, and hear from our community. 

We invite you to join us for these critical conversations, and on social media throughout the month, to learn from each other, promote mental health as a part of our overall wellness and, ultimately, help normalize the conversation about mental health.
