The SafeUT smartphone app is a statewide service that provides real-time crisis intervention to Utah’s students, parents, and educators at no cost. SafeUT was developed by the legislatively created SafeUT Commission, chaired by the Utah Attorney General’s Office. SafeUT allows students, educators, or parents in crisis to open a two-way messaging service with master’s level clinicians, call a crisis counselor directly, or submit confidential tips to schools administrators on bullying, threats, violence, etc. The app is staffed by master’s level trained crisis counselors at the University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI) 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
