Need to see a psychiatrist or mental health professional ASAP? If you're in crisis, HMHI's Same-Day Psychiatry Clinic lets you see a mental health professional right away, on the same day you call us at 801-585-1212. All visits are virtual. We are open Monday—Friday and accept most insurances.

We offer treatment for general psychiatric issues and mental health crises, including:

  • Psychiatric assessments,
  • Help with managing your medications if you feel anxious, psychotic, or are in a crisis.

We are not able to provide some services, including:

  • Treatment for eating disorders

  • Evaluations for ADD/ADHD or Autism
  • Prescribing any stimulants (e.g. Adderall)
  • Prescribing any benzodiazepines (e.g. Xanax, Valium)

What to Expect at Your Appointment

During your virtual appointment, your provider will:

  • ask you how you're feeling,
  • find out if you're taking any medications, and
  • review your medical and treatment history.

Your provider will then talk with you about starting behavioral health treatment. 

Our goal is to get you the treatment you need right away so you can stay safe and healthy. We also want to help you manage and prevent a crisis so you don't feel worse.
