Southwest Behavioral Health Center

The Southwestern region of Utah has experienced enormous growth over the past several decades. Many of the social support systems, long a part of Utah tradition, have been stressed by growing issues of mental illness, substance abuse, child abuse, youth crime, and lack of housing. The collective impact has left families and communities struggling to find answers with limited fiscal and professional capacity.

The county commissions of Washington, Kane, Garfield, Beaver and Iron Counties in Utah have joined with the State of Utah to create Southwest Behavioral Health Center for the provision of comprehensive mental health and substance abuse services. Southwest Behavioral Health Center is proud to be a member of a strong human service delivery system which is helping our communities to address very difficult individual, family, and community problems. Our Center is committed to continuing the partnership with our communities to insure a healthy and drug free future for Southern Utah’s citizens.

Founded in 1986, Southwest Behavioral Health Center is committed to its mission of assisting clients, families, and communities in preventing and recovering from severe and persistent mental illness and addiction. Southwest promotes recovery and offers solutions through care, advocacy, employment, and clinical excellence.

More than three decades later, Southwest has served thousands of adults and children and continues to grow and provide a variety of services including:

  • Mental Health Support Services
