Thank you for your interest in our Community Mental Health (CMH) Concentration! This is the first year that this is considered a full concentration. The CMH Concentration will allow residents the opportunity to rotate through elective sites that focus on serving patients who are unfunded, underfunded, underserved and/or have severe and persistent mental illness. We currently have residents piloting rotation sites for the track and are working on bringing several other locations on board. We also have a monthly lecture series track residents are encouraged to help plan.

Goals of the Concentration:

  • Provide diverse educational experiences through lectures and networking with individuals who currently work in the public sector
  • Provide diverse clinical experiences within the community and SPMI population
  • Potential research/scholarly project ideas
  • Prepare the resident to be able to move on to a public psychiatry fellowship or work in public psychiatry upon graduation

Current Rotations and Rotations in Development:

  • Volunteers of America Assertive Community Treatment Team
  • Impact Health (clinic serving exclusively unfunded patients)
  • Idaho State Hospital
  • Davis County Outpatient Clinic
  • Resident Continuity Clinic at Summit County Outpatient Clinic
  • Utah Navajo Health System Telepsychiatry

Lecture Series Examples:

  • The History of Community Mental Health
  • Population Health
  • Overview of the Salt Lake County Mental Health System
  • Assertive Community Treatment
  • Representatives from the state capital
