PSI-Utah is a primarily volunteer run organization made up of several hundred community members including survivors and providers. Originally named the Utah Maternal Mental Health Collaborative, PSI Utah was founded in September of 2014 by Amy-Rose White with the help of Tawna Burton, formerly of the March of Dimes. The former UMMHC became a 501c3 as a state Chapter of Postpartum Support International in 2017.
