Bridge follows the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) model standards set by SAMSHA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). The ACT model is a “team approach” (case managers, therapists, nurses, psychiatrist, peer support specialists, and budget specialist with Representative Payee Services) meeting the client’s where they are, often referred to as “hospital without walls”. Individuals on the Bridge team receive services in their homes, where they work and in other setting in the community where problems occur or where support is needed most. Client’s may receive assistance with helping to take care of basic needs-taking medications, find housing, apply for food stamps, go back to school or seek employment. Bridge has a small ratio of clients to providers to ensure the most availability and ability to meet client’s needs with client’s having access to their treatment team 24/7.


Bridge serves adults (18 years old+) who have been diagnosed with a “serious mental illness”, mostly individuals with schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, delusional disorder, and/or bi-polar disorder. 

Clients of Bridge are referred internally through various treatment teams within Wasatch Behavioral Health and meet the criteria set by the ACT model through SAMSHA.

Once a referral has been made, Bridge will review the referral and if the individual meets criteria, then a formal intake with our Prescriber, case manager, client’s previous case manager and/or family member will complete the admission process.


All clients of Bridge must have Medicaid in order to receive services.
