The Children’s Center Utah unveils mental health campus in West Valley City

Before an assembled gathering of donors, patrons, clients, and additional constituents, The Children’s Center Utah hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the grand opening of its new children’s mental health campus in West Valley City earlier today. 

The new campus is located at 3725 W. 4100 South in West Valley City. 

This milestone marks the completion of the multi-million dollar project aimed at providing comprehensive mental health support for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and their families. The new campus showcases the successful collaboration between public and private partners, highlighting the importance of investments in early childhood mental health. 

The campus is also home to a new infant and early childhood mental health education and training center that provides child-centered consultation and training to build early childhood professionals’ capacity to enhance the emotional well-being of children in their care. 

"The vision of the new children’s mental health campus has been years in the making, and we are deeply grateful for the outstanding support of individuals, foundations, corporations and the Utah State Legislature, which has made this exciting new era for children’s mental health in Utah possible," said Rebecca Dutson, president and CEO of The Children’s Center Utah. "This isn't just a center; it's a promise to support and empower children and families from the earliest moments, forging a path toward a brighter future." 

Christian Gardner, CEO of Gardner Group and board member serving The Children’s Center Utah, expressed his appreciation for being involved in the construction of the new campus, "We are truly privileged to have contributed to the development of this new facility and the enhancement of its programs. The Children’s Center Utah and its staff play a crucial role in the mental health of our Utah youth, and it is an honor to support them.” 

As part of the grand opening celebrations, The Children’s Center Utah also unveiled its plans for future satellite facilities starting in Utah County, promising a wider reach and a deeper impact across the state. 

The event also coincides with the center's 60th anniversary, a fitting moment to commemorate its legacy of commitment and care for children's well-being.
