At DHHS, we believe in ensuring all individuals and communities in Utah have access to a system of services. Our services promote fair and equitable opportunities to live safe and healthy lives.
Family services provide and promote resources and services to children and families through department agencies. Services assist with disabilities, mental and behavioral health, child support, financial stability, and more.
The Youth Services model is a “no wrong door” approach to early intervention. Through this model, Utah delivers evidence-based individualized youth and family plans with early screening, assessment, plan management and comprehensive access to services, all driven by the youth and family strengths and needs.
Adult Services is a link between the national Administration on Aging and local programs to provide home and community-based services to millions of older persons. Utah Adult Protective Services has the responsibility and authority to investigate abuse, neglect, and exploitation of vulnerable adults.
Health services protect the public’s health through preventing avoidable illness, injury, disability, and premature death; assure access to affordable, quality health care; and promote healthy lifestyles.
