Find the Support You Need: Mental Health Forums, Therapists & More!

Welcome to the Black Physicians of Utah’s Mental Wellness Alliance page. We are champions for Mental Health Access and Education for Black and marginalized Utahans. Please see below for our lists of upcoming events and our Mental Health Provider directory. We have compiled a list of mental health resources specifically tailored to the unique experiences and challenges faced by African Americans and disadvantaged Utahans. As a community of Black physicians, we recognize the importance of mental health and are dedicated to ensuring that our community has access to the care and support they need. Whether you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, or other mental health issues, we hope that the resources provided here can help guide you towards the care and support you need to thrive.
