Mental Health Advocacy
Your generous support empowers our advocacy initiatives like the Stop Stigma Together Coalition. We are dedicated to forging a world where individuals, including those facing substance use challenges, feel empowered to seek help without fear of judgment. With your backing, we can spearhead transformative change at local and national levels, gradually ushering in a brighter, stigma-free future for all.
Substance Use Disorder Support
We recognize that substance use disorders often intertwine with mental health concerns. Your philanthropic contributions fuel our capacity to provide access to care and support for individuals and families grappling with both issues. We offer tailored resources, access to rehabilitation programs, and guidance on the path to recovery and healing. Our Kem and Carolyn Gardner Crisis Care Center will house community services, training, and crisis care in one location including a medication-assisted treatment clinic for individuals with opiate use disorders.
Research and Innovation
Innovation stands at the core of our endeavor to revolutionize mental health and substance use care. At the Translational Research Center, researchers, educators, scientists, clinicians, students, and members of the community will have the opportunity to work in “neighborhoods” – or communities of practice – and coalesce around key issues, treatments, and training initiatives. Your financial support amplifies our capacity to fund groundbreaking research, explore innovative treatment options, and pioneer progressive strategies for prevention, early intervention, and holistic recovery.
At the heart of our foundation lies a commitment to empowering communities. With your invaluable support, we extend a lifeline to individuals and families navigating the complexities of mental health and substance use challenges. HMHI’s Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams (MCOT) go into the community and provide free, prompt, face-to-face responses to any resident of Salt Lake County who is experiencing a behavioral health crisis. Your contributions enable us to expand our reach, offer comprehensive support groups, and provide resources that foster healing, resilience, and interconnectedness.
Education and Awareness
Education serves as the linchpin in dismantling the barriers surrounding mental health and substance use. Your financial support amplifies our educational efforts, allowing us to create a vast repository of informative resources, host an array of impactful workshops, and launch sweeping awareness campaigns that not only challenge misconceptions but also promote empathy, understanding, and acceptance for those facing substance use disorders. Your support augments our ability to train and recruit tomorrow’s leaders in mental health.
