Free Mental Health Clinic

The Utah Foundation for Biomedical Research is currently donating space for the Polizzi Foundation’s Free Mental Health Clinic, a completely volunteer-run clinic for uninsured and underinsured individuals in the Salt Lake area who are in need of mental health care.

There is a desperate need in Utah for mental health services.  Of Utah’s 2.7 million residents, 352,000 are uninsured (including 94,500 children).  Approximately 82,000 adults and 34,000 children in Utah are living with serious mental health conditions, yet Utah’s public mental health system provides services to only 22 percent of adults who live with serious mental illnesses in the state.
