Susie Wiet, MD

Dr. Wiet established a small private practice in 2011 and has recently chosen to allocate her time for expansion and program development offering expertise in the overlap of psychiatry with trauma and addiction. In May 2014, Dr. Wiet founded and chairs the Trauma-Resiliency Collaborative (TRC), which is an independent forum of multi-disciplinary professionals dedicated to improving the identification of and services for those affected by violence, trauma and abuse, while advocating to build resiliency within our community and State. This parlays well with Dr. Wiet’s interest in blending mental health and primary care services through primary care integration. She has recently assumed a psychiatric consulting role with the Department of Health, Utah Clinics.
