A New Era of Healing and Hope
The detrimental effects of poor mental health go wide and deep—shattering lives and devastating society. While the pandemic has raised the urgency and importance of addressing mental health issues, not enough has been done. People suffering from mental health and substance use disorders continue to be marginalized, and experience shame and prejudice.
At Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI), we recognize that these challenges are too complex and ubiquitous for any one organization to take on alone. That’s why we’re partnering across campus, the Mountain West, and the country to transform mental and brain health.
We’re working across disciplines to develop better and new interventions and approaches to complex syndromes, prevent suicide, and eliminate stigma. Together, we can provide hope, healing, and the chance for those suffering from poor mental health to live the dignified lives they deserve.

Help Us Transform and Save Lives
Last year, we launched a sweeping mission to transform mental health in Utah and across the country. Buoyed by the extraordinary gift of $150 million from the Huntsman Mental Health Foundation, the momentum is growing as we take a holistic approach to solving the mental health crisis. We’ve just started the journey, but already we’re changing and saving lives.
We ask you to help us double the Huntsman’s generous gift. Every donation makes our collective impact stronger.
