Receiving Center

The WBH Receiving Center and Recovery Outreach Center (ROC) provide crisis mental health services to all age groups in Utah and Wasatch Counties. Our goal is to provide immediate access to mental health evaluations and consultations to the people in our community.

We partner closely with local law enforcement and can provide Mobile Crisis Outreach (MCOT) services when needed.

The Receiving Center and the ROC are staffed with master level therapists and peer support specialists round the clock who are trained to respond to suicide and other crisis mental health issues.

Adults may stay at the WBH Receiving Center for up to 24 hours while youth may be referred to Vantage Point (when appropriate).

MCOT  (Mobile Crisis Outreach Team)

Mobile Crisis Outreach Teams provide support to individuals and families in the community, at times partnering and responding with law enforcement. Where possible crisis mental health services are facilitated at the Recovery Outreach Center, but there are occasions where emergent mental health services need to be provided to community members in their home or place of crisis. Regardless of a person's insurance, mobile mental health services can be provided. Please talk with our crisis line staff to inquire further about this resource for you, a loved one or someone you may be concerned about.

Intensive Residential Treatment (IRT)

Inpatient Services

Utah State Hospital (USH)

Both Utah and Wasatch counties are allocated a limited number of USH beds according to population census.
