Find a Mental Health Hotline Service in Utah

First and foremost, a mental health hotline provides support and intervention services for people who are at risk of harming themselves or others. However, if the risk of harm is so great that you believe serious injury is imminent, stop reading and call 911 for immediate assistance. In other cases, it’s the decision to commit suicide or self-harm that is imminent. Instead of emergency response services, these individuals may seek out a suicide hotline.

Any Utah resident can find somebody to talk to by using the National Suicide Prevention Network—Lifeline: 800-273-TALK(8255). There’s also an easy way to find local hotlines by calling 211 and using the United Way’s hotline. You can also find 24-hour hotline services by county with the following numbers:
