Every child, youth, adult and elder has the right to live in their community with dignity and hope.
Mental health recovery is a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with a mental health problem to live a meaningful life in a community of his or her choice while striving to achieve his or her full potential.

As the Administrator for Salt Lake County Medicaid Behavioral Health funds, Optum Salt Lake County will look to community stakeholders for guidance, input, and participation in the ongoing development of effective systems of care.
