Title Historical overview of the Utah Association for Mental Health
Date 1968-06
Description The purpose of this research was to follow the progress of the Utah Mental Hygiene society, later known as the Utah Association for Mental Health, from 1925-1967. Particular attention was paid to the areas of (1) public support, (2) Legislative activities, (3) reaching the public, (4) projects in which the Association has become involved, and (5) relationships with other agencies. A systematic review was made of the minutes of the Association’s Board of Directors meetings covering the period from 1925 through 1967. In addition, interviews were held with people who have been involved in the Association. The amount of money given by the public to the Association for its operation and the establishment of active county chapters were used as criteria for measuring public support. It appears that public support was minimal prior to 1953 when the first substantial increase in money was received. Funds have increased steadily since that time.
