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 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.
