Mental Wellness Alliance

Supporting health and wellbeing in our community.

 

Creating solutions that lead to better mental wellness community-wide.

The goal of the Mental Wellness Alliance is to facilitate and support county-wide, systemic, sustainable solutions aimed at improving mental wellness in our community — covering mental health and substance use, treatment and prevention, for both youth and adults. 

Mental health issues can not be effectively tackled without the whole community’s involvement. In close partnership with government, nonprofit, healthcare, and private sector leaders, Park City Community Foundation sparked the creation of the Summit County Mental Wellness Alliance in 2016. The Community Foundation now serves as the Alliance’s institutional hub, convening Alliance partners to ensure better mental health in both the short and long term.

The Alliance itself does not provide any direct services. Rather, it works with partners and community members in Summit County to foster collaboration, identify gaps in service and support, and facilitate funding opportunities to fill those gaps. Current Alliance partners offer mental health and wellness services for community members, and they are listed below.
