The SafeUT smartphone application 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, which is chaired by the Utah Attorney General’s Office. SafeUT allows students, educators, or parents in crisis to confidentially:

  • open a two-way messaging service chat 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 Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI), formerly University Neuropsychiatric Institute (UNI), 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
