Licensed Mental Health Professionals in Utah

How many licensed mental health professionals are there in Utah?

Which mental health profession has the most licensed members?

I was curious so I looked it up. The Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL), part of the Utah Department of Commerce, provides the data on an easy-to-access web page.

I have found the Utah DOPL to be proactive, consumer-friendly, and technologically up-to-date, which is refreshing!

I took the data from the DOPL site and deleted all the professions except for mental health professionals to produce the chart below.

This data is from 5 Nov 2018 and will undoubtedly change over time. See the DOPL website for up-to-date numbers.
